Personally, I couldn't care less if they were relegated to dockside, but that wasn't what I suggested.

There should be enough professional and experienced crew aboard to take one in open water, if necessary.

I don't think the requirement needs to be on "Tall Ships", which is essentially undefined anyway. The requirement to have experience should be specific to the design. Sailing a steel hull 20th century designed square rigger would not qualify, in my book, to be applicable to an 18th century replica.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
