Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Just for fun lets ask our selfs what exactly safer means? does it mean that big boats, say over 40' don't need liferafts or epribs? If this is the case why is that larger boats are more likely to carry more "safety" gear in anticipation of catastrophic loss? Why is it that 9 of 10 coast guard rescue videos are of large boats and how is it possible that small boats have safely crossed every sea in the world since the beginning of time? Its not the boat!
