Re: Sailing, safety, & size
I ask apology if I mistook your words.
I see sailing across the ocean in an open beach cat as a "stunt". In the same category as taking an inflatable across the ocean. It's not cruising as I see it. You are correct, I do not know the guy who sailed the beach cat. BUT, that is a FAR different than the cruising Larry has accomplished during his life.
Not a problem Geg, you are a nice guy
. Yes I agree, i's different but I has not talking (only) about cruising in what regards great sailors. I talked about that guy being a great sailor. Great sailors are not only cruisers but also (and mostly) professional ones.
Anyway that does not matter. You are right, it is a stunt and I utilized is example just to show that size matters. It is a stunt to cross the Atlantic solo on a 6m cat but not a stunt to cross it on a 45ft cruising cat and it is not a stunt because it is safer. Size matters
