The only time I think that stopping makes sense is if you're going to get close to shore or a major shipping lane if you don't stop. Otherwise, making progress towards your destination makes much more sense.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
