Hey T,

Thank you and quite true about the series of events. I will put it one further so people are not scared off: Everyone screws up (hell, me more than most). I got the chance to learn from my mistakes without it taking my boat. They did not. Unfortunate and unfair, but as was said, the sea is unforgiving. You cannot go to sea without screwing up. No amount of books or classes will fix that. They can only get you prepared - then it is the school of hard knocks. Luck is involved and screwing up is human and part of the learning process.
