Find another hobby. Becoming a good sailor requires more than buying the boat, reading some books, getting a few pointers. You can hurt yourself and others/ If you arent ready to put the time in to gain some experience and open your mind up to listening to others who MAY have more wisdom than you, and slow down a little ( without giving up your dream), then you are a menace to yourself. However I do beleive people have the right to commit suicide.
You can hurt yourself and others/ should be Can KILL yourself and others... That is the issue, if he might just brake a leg or an arm who would care, but he can kill himself or others, that is the problem. I have started a few comments on this topic a few times since the first day the troll started it, but have always refrained.
