I'll take it further with sail-less sailing! Drifting is the purest form of boating and cheapest!

Lose the boat while you're at it. Just go swimming.

Chrisncate: You said "Keep in mind that the motorless cruising sailor typically wouldn't be in a rental boat situation either, there is a difference in the overall way you sail when you know ahead of time that you have no motor. A boat in distress isn't really the same as a dedicated sail only vessel."

I agree with you. Where are you planning on going? Are you going long term cruising or short hops? Are you on any kind of timetable? If not, I kind of see your point but it is not for me.

Powerboating enthusiast friend of mine said to me when we picked up the boat, "best part of a great sailboat is a great motor".

I sailed into my slip for the first time last night. Perfect. It helped that A) I have a downwind slip and B) there was virtually no wind. Getting out without the engine on is more of a challenge, but I'm almost there. My goal is to use the engine only when absolutely necessary. BTW- I have a Vetus (Mitsubishi) Diesel 20hp that works great. After roughly 40 hours of water time, I'm still on my first tank of gas .
