I would find it educational to hear from a few guys like Boasun (professional mariner), Omatako (delivery skipper) and the "out there now or recently returned" cruisers answers to the following queries:
1) What do you think are the critical skills and techniques necessary to bringing you, the crew and the boat back to shore alive?
2) What cherished tenets have undergone a revision through your career as a sailor? What's changed in your mind and why?
3) What do you believe are the most important advances in gear, electronics or techniques in your life as a sailor? What are the least important, or most "oversold"?
Thanks in advance.
