I expect David was being cautions. He's one of the most careful people I've met, from reading accident reports and books (e.g. the Fastnet race gone bad), to preparing ahead of time.

Thanks Brad.
I do tend to push it a little more when I'm solo than when I have crew. The theory is that if something goes wrong and I'm by myself I'm usually only endangering property.
