The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: New land being formed

Pretty cool. I don't think I needed a lesson to avoid sailing in a pumice field, but it's locked in now.

These aren't really all that uncommon, btw, and from what I've read about that encounter, the "island" decayed right back into the sea shortly thereafter.

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