"Sailing or motoring along at 6 kts is not quite the same as dogfighting at hudreds of miles per hour, "
Easy for you to say, nick. But I dare say a dogfighter never had to contend with keeping one eye on the engine for the better part of an whole hour, while the giant kraken were attacking the helm from all sides seeking shelter from a squall.
And then of course, if that distracts you too long and you wander into "Here Be Dragons"...good lord, when you see the Krakens slither off and disappear, you just know something bad's going to happen.
