Well, the sea trial really isn't to see how the boat sails, since you really aren't out there for very long. It is really just to check the engine, transmission, cooling system, and other systems that can't really be checked tied up to the dock. Raising the sails is often part of this...but not the main point of it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
