This is EXACTLY right.

And actually, this puts a much more interesting spin on this thread. The discussion always centers around how "tough" the "blue water boat" is compared to a production boat.

The REAL question is this: Are YOU tougher than a production boat?

I would wager that 98% of the dudes discussing the bluewater thing have no idea of the answer to this question because they've never even been close to that edge (I'm one of them). The idea of the "bluewater boat" just gives them a false sense of comfort in that mental exercise.
