I got to thinking about this the other morning when I had no engine, no wind, and the swell was slowly taking me shoreward. If you have a motor, and the wind isn't co-operating, and you need to get somewhere, by all means, use the Iron Jenny. Not to cast aspersions, but I think it's easy to get a bit elitist about how little the motor is used. It would be great to never need it, but it's not an ideal world out there. The reality is, if you have to get somewhere, you get there however you can.
