If the world was really like "Reality TV", we'd be in bigger trouble than we already are. Reading some of Dave Gerr's books on motors, propellers, sailing, and boats in general may help leaven some of the paranoia. On the other hand, I did sail transatlantic with a skipper (a WWII Destroyer Commander) who believed in what he called the US Air Force approach: "Plan Everything," he said. "Then when all hell breaks loose, it will be because you planned it that way. "
