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.
