Sorry, gonna have to disagree with that statement, my sailboat has an AUXILIARY engine on it.

It might be more accurate to say that a Captain that can't sail his boat (without using the engine) in and out of a harbor/slip/mooring isn't seaworthy. Though I'd disagree with that statement as well.

Maybe you wanted to say the engine wouldn't be reliable, IDK.
