Re: Sailing Darwin awards
Good judgement is a necessary attribute for a good skipper of a boat. An intelligent person, even one who makes a mistake learns from his mistake. Admitting a mistake is a sign of intelligence and judgement. A person with poor judgement should sell their boat now and never consider advising anybody on anything nautical lest they cause death. This really is a matter of life and death so one has to be careful who they listen to.
I simply object to anybody telling how they "rode out the storm aboard their boat" because it gives others the false impression that that is a reasonable course of action.
