He is a great example and also the worst example.

His boat is a specially designed high latitude, high level extreme expedition yacht. And he doesnt sail anywhere near we do, nor in the manner we do.

I agree with him about warps. They wont reduce the power in the boat enough.
I don't like the idea of laying ahull. Did it once when forced by an idiot skipper and I thought it very unsafe and I left the boat within minutes of us arriving at the next port...

I agree with him in hoving to. But his boat obviously does it better than most.

I have the parachute anchor for survival situations. Skip may be sailing in extreme conditions but they are not survival situations. 70 knots for me is survival, for him it may be put on a cup of tea while I pop in the next reef....
