Well you could all be carrying Sweep Oars on your sailing vessels and be using them when there is no wind or have a strong need to go straight into that wind and tide. This was how it was done in the old days before there were engines.
Choices: Sweep Oars, Engine? Hmmmmm!? Sore back & arms or finger tip throttle control??
Which shall it be today?
