Re: Sailing, safety, & size

If you have one simple system, the reliability is high, add another in line system and the reliability of the whole goes down. Add another simple system and once more, it drops.

Now take a complex system and add that into the string and things start to get sketchy, don't they?

Once more to the premise that a smaller, simpler boat can be a lot safer than a larger complex boat.

If you (and by you I am talking to the weakest member of the crew) can't handle the boat in BAD weather, by yourself, (if we are talking about a cruising couple) without electrics, HOW SAFE IS THAT BOAT?

Don't forget that when the car/truck breaks down, you pull off the side of the road and call AAA. Try that 500 miles “out there”!
