Mmmm, yea, fly, I would prefer to pass there. Give me the open road at a minimum. The open ocean sounds even nicer - none of these annoying people wanting to wand my privates and scan my shoes!

I guess my point is if your just worried about safety, boating may not be for you. I have nothing against being as safe as you can, but worrying about the keel falling off....well, I could worry about my wheel falling off the car, but I don't. I just maintain my car and drive it. Wheels falling off cars is probably much more common than keels falling off sailboats.

Nope, not JUST worried about safety. Just think its prudent to be informed and doing the right thing. Informed to me means weighing the pros and cons of different setups and then going with what works best for my situation/preferences. Do I think a keel will fall off on me, nope. Do I think I will flip a catamaran, nope. But I want to weigh all the pros and cons of any design I go out on.

Safety is a state of mind! Your most important safety equipment is your brain. Knowing and being aware of the dangers around you and being prepared & equiped to handle them. Otherwise don't worry because that is just added stress you don't need.
