A bit of perspective

Accidents, tragic or otherwise, happen. And as much as anyone hates to see them happen, the ONLY way to eliminate them is to eliminate mankind. PERIOD.

It''s up to every individual on the planet to do their best to leave a clean wake. That''s the only way you can minimize accidents and the damage they do. It does NO good, to blame, point fingers, or anything else. By all means, express your feelings, but in doing so, try to maintain some perspective and avoid temper tantrums and emotional outbursts. Otherwise....YOU aren''t leaving a clean wake.

I assume your opinion is motivated by the oil spill off the coast of Spain.

We can often prevent future mistakes from happening by analyzing past mistakes, laying the blame where it rightly belongs, and punishing the guilty party appropriately. Some people learn from their own mistakes and others learn from the example of others. Some never learn.

Denr:
It took you 42 minutes to repeat yourself ???

Maybe having a Benehuntilina isn''t so bad ?! So far, my Hunter seems to be holding up and performing well, dispite being almost 20 years old. Maybe one shouldn''t generalize ???

Why do you end all of your posts with "Happy Sails", for your information my sails are not happy, they are folded up neatly in a sail bag. My sails are only happy when they are like you, filled with hot air!
