Actually, we're told to only leave them if we have to step up into the liferaft. If the boat is still afloat, you're much better off staying with her, rather than trying to survive in a rubber liferaft.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I wonder how many boats have been found floating at sea after the crew has abandoned ship? I know of at least a couple of this kind of story but are there any stats on it?

Charlie,
Sounds like a smoke-em-if-ya-got-em sailing scene. Glad to see you still have a smile on your face... Conditions were a little more favorable this weekend in the southeast. Make it out this way and the cocktails are on me.

Unfortunately, this happens far more often than not.

You bet! There's not much including sinking the boat that'll keep me from sailing. Croaking might but I've no interest in that for a while. Not sure when I'll ever make it out thata way though. I'll certainly reciprocate if ya get out here.

A good autohelm would allow you to sail dead for a while. When we die we'll have a lot of free time to devote to our favorite activity. Still enjoy screwing my wife after 12 years of marriage, but I don't think she's going to indulge me in that respect after I'm gone. She'll be happy to see me sailing off into the sunset slumped against the cockpit coaming.

My dad told me as I was growing up sailing,

"The boat's tougher than you are"

"The boat can take it, if you can"

He was right.
