Re: How boats are lost?
This would be good area for the Coast Guard or ASA. to compile data that could be used to slow down the loss of boats and life. They may already do it? The FAA. has very good data for aircraft. The FAA, is able to institute changes in regulations and help find mechanical defects. I have seen an inquiry? After a race that did not go well but this is not you everyday event with normal boats and crew. The wide variety of boats motor,sail. paddle could make the sorting data into a format that could be used might be very hard.
