Re: Why All the Absurd Circumnavigation Threads?

there is a word for it but its not politically correct but basically its the push button masses that go cruising now and any little thing that goes bad, like a bad HAIR DAY is considered rescueable

and distress...

to blame in part is all the new technology that makes it so easy now for people to "follow" you, text while at sea...and basically have internet, tv basically everything you have home out there, now you arent really out there anyways

you are just a call away from help or whatever

the spike is due to this

NOT boat design, not materials, not the weather, global waming, whatever

its cruisers views now on what constitutes an abandon boat scenario that has changed

not in 100 percent of cases but damn high up there

Islander 36 no longer for sale...its MINE!
