Some of the boats I'm talking about burn 20-30 gallons or more an hour. With fuel at $4+ per gallon... it wouldn't take too many hours for them to pay for my sails in fuel costs.

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.
