I acknowledged that in my first reply to you. Yes, they can't fix the boat.

Context was my point. The context of dinghygoddess was they should get back out there. They had to abandon their boat to save their kid, they didn't drive it to the bottom of the ocean. Encouraging them to get back aboard is reasonable. I would not encourage them to make that passage under those circumstances again. But, as I've said before, that is exclusively their decision to make.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
