centaursailor is on a distinguished road
Maybe we should start a thread about near misses and other cute stories that happened to people

Feel sorry about the loss any life or limb, boats are less important. Some sailors are just not cutout for distance sailing despite their bravery. Caution often serves better than blind courage. Electronics are great but rely on them at your peril. Accidents happen to us all but theres no need to invite them aboard. A hit and miss thread could be a lifesaver. Go for it.
Safe sailing
