Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Jeff,

Well said.

When I started the thread, I only had in mind asking why so many people equate size with safety. It is NOT. You can get a very safe & seaworthy boat in just about ANY size. Because my Nor'Sea is 27 foot, she is not automatically unsafe. I know that many 27s might be unsafe for blue water. Just because a boat is 65 foot, does NOT guarantee she is safe. AND a lot depends on the crew!

My working carrier was in the aerospace industry. The last 10+ in spacecraft. I worked with many of the best engineers in the world. But that did not mean we didn't have failures!!
