And I do agree with you, sailor dude.

Licensing would not guarantee anything. It means someone passed a written and practical test at one time any maybe did not make 100%. Hell 100% does not mean everything either. You cannot teach common sense no matter how hard we try. However it is a start.

Oh well, I don't think I could have pawned off the Mason I was going to buy as a pallet raft anyway.

The point has been made before that certain sailors could probably circumnavigate in a bathtub. The corollary is also undoubtedly true. certain sailers will sink their boats and need rescuing regardless of what they are sailing.

Very well put. It is a lot like aviation. You can have a tricked out, fine aircraft but if the pilot is not up to speed, all the bells and whistles will not save him. It is hard to beat sound thinking teamed with experience.

Yes, it s a very good photo.

Because we cannot draw the line consistently where common sense stops and stupidity begins. How many of us ride without helmets?
I don't even think about it... Wiped out in Bermuda 30 years ago on a moped at about 18 miles an hour and still have a scar on the end of my chin.

Wiped out in Nova Scotia on my 750. Was wearing a full face and am very grateful. My chin skidded a goodly distance across the pavement. The helmet was trashed but I survived.

So now... I put the helmet on to go from one of the driveway to the other (but at least I still get out there and ride )
