CBinRI is on a distinguished road
I consider myself to be a religious person. I attend church regularly and am on the Vestry of my Church. But I feel strongly that cruising/sailing and prosteletyzing do not mix. I would feel affronted if someone tried to impose their faith on me in this context and I would not consider imposing mine on anyone else. Most of us are on the water to relax and enjoy ourselves -- not to have our belief systems challenged. I wouldn't go from boat to boat soliciting donations for my political party either.

Edit: Sorry, just noticed this thread for the first time and may have unwisely resurrected it.
