Re: 1st Aid at Sea & Important Like Items to Carry
"I have had a few malfunctions in flight and it happens."
I suppose you could say "MIF happens". At sea there is a similar phrase, "--it happens".
Kinda like the tail breaking off an Airbus in flight, as happened up by JFK some years ago. But I suspect that all the methodical approaches you have had over the years will work just fine for you on a boat. A keelboat is basically a fixed-wing aircraft with one wing (the keel) in the water, and the other wing shapeable. As long as you don't try something foolish like making it into a rotary-wing aircraft, you should be OK. (G)
