Sorry folks, I did not mean to start a war. The tongue-in-cheek list was a reminder that big boats can get into trouble too. Maybe that's their 'bad luck'. The riff on Bligh was a reminder that small boats can do a lot more than they are given credit for if they are lucky enough to have a crew of skilled seamen. *NOWHERE* did I intend to imply equality between large and small boats. If that is what you read, I apologize for not expressing myself more clearly.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
