Would you say Colombus, Magellan, Vasco de Gamma, Cortez, William Perry, Rolf Almudsen, Shakley. Tenzing Nordgay, Sir Edmind Hillary Neil Armstrong, Jimmy Johnson, Richard Petty, Dennis Conners were reckless?

Yes it would be proably reckless for a Sailnet poster. But isnt there are larger assumed risk when you volunteer to board a ship going out into s storm knowingly?
Well, that is certainly a new way of looking at it.
