Tartan- I don't really doubt the science or the conclusions for that matter, but can you imagine the amount of oil you would have to carry onboard to have any affect on hurricane windspeed!!! Most boats are doing good to have the tankage for need fuel. We would all have to be sailing something that had EXON written on the side. Isn't this a practice that started with whaleships that had huge amounts of sperm oil on board??? (G- just let it go, please!)
