The human factor made it a no-brainer. But since the tide was against us the wind high and the motor flaky I'm pretty sure I would have not done it even with reliable crew.
Of course if their was a gang of thugs running down the dock that would have changed the equation.

You do bring up a very interesting question. Every time we go out their is a decision being made.
Is the crew, boat, weather etc. OK enough to leave the dock?
