Not having the same level of worry means he will sail a lot more , gathering experience far more quickly. He will be much more impulsive in dropping the lines and heading out, any time the urge hits him which it will do far more often, without a lot of worry about making a mistake or hitting something. Lack of such a boat is why so many rarely leave the marina. Its an underestimated factor in owning a boat.
"Rolleyes" is an admission you have no valid points to make, conceding the argument.
