I am unwilling to join not because these two missing items, but I don't know what other essentials are missing in the boat. What is your take on this?

WE HAVE BEEN SAILING FOR GENERATIONS WITHOUT THE SAFETY GADGETS YOU MISS. iF THE SKIPPER IS GOOD AND THE BOAT IS SOUND, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
bUT THEN, IN YOU HAVE TO ASK WHAT YOU ASKED, HOW COULD YOU KNOW ABOUT THE BOAT AND THE SKIPPER ANYWAY? RATHER STAY HOME...
