The "Cogito", eh? It won't be "Cogito ergo sum", but "Cogito ergo velum"

I get scared whenever the wind blows because it feels like my sailboat is going to tip over! What a super idea!

Oh, so you don't get scared when the wind is blow 5-6 knots and it feels like your boats going to tip over? Think you're some sort of tough guy?

It's a little hard to imagine what a gybe would be like in a 20 kt wind.

"The idea is that the crew can control the angle of heel to a maximum of around 10."

Damn, we must have one of those thingies installed in the bilge! I mean, we MUST have one of them, how else is it we also manage to keep the boat to 10 degrees of heel?!

I saw that too. Is that 10 deg. for the mast, 10 deg. for the boat, a combination of the two, 10 deg. each... Damned French!

An amazing investment in inventiveness. Having solved that problem (hull now upright) he will go on to solve the problem of wave motion - to produce the first sailing submarine, perhaps?
