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
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!
