sailing schools-vs-seat of your pants learning to sail
Oh yeah, much of what I know about yacht maintenance and about how various boats are built, I learned working in boat yards while I was a teenager and in college. I also learned an enormous amount about how boats were built and how the business works when my Mother was in developing her lines of boats during the years that she was a boat importer.
To this day, I still read extensively, and also enjoy sailing with different folks at all levels of sailing which allows me to experience a lot of different boats in a year and learn from that as well.
