Give me a break Bob. We can agree that hitting a MOB with a sailboat at 7 kts might hurt him. But, of the four or five different MOB techniques I can think of, none of them suggest that you approach the MOB at 7 kts. They all recommend that you bring the boat nearly to a stop as you approach the person in the water. So, when you aim at the MOB, the boat should be coasting toward him at a slow speed when you reach him. I didn''t suggest that you run the MOB down at seven kts! Sheesh!
