Re: Do you believe in miracles???

Does anybody else find it odd that we still have grinders hammering away, while they are simply loading an hydraulic system and a computer is necessary to keep the boat sailing?

Advances are great, but this seems we are beginning to boarder on the crew being unnecessary. Did you see all the electronic devices on their forearms and even the tacticians had some flip down tablet on their torso. I'm not opposed, it just seems less like a sailing race and more like a computer race.
