Re: This sailing others peoples boats thing is looking like work
Well I can think of 10 different boats I've sailed on this season so far.
Some of these skippers let me sail their boat more than twice.
I'm pretty sure if I had my own boat I would be "stuck" sailing just one most of the time.
It is getting to be drag never being able to remember if this boat is the one with the head that works and the reefing that doesn't work or the one with the engine that shuts off at odd times but the roller furling works great.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
