If you like sailing, and have a boat, and are out there doing it, as I am, then I just don't see why anyone cares what anyone else cares about.

In fact, if the waters in which I sail become less crowded over time, great!

I don't need other people to enjoy sailing for me to enjoy sailing.
It goes to economy of scale. If there is not enough demand for sailboats, then fewer of them will be produced. The ones that will be produced will be out of the price range of most people. It will become a sport only for the likes of the Liptons, Ellisons, etc. etc.
