  Well put!  I admire your desire to sail as much as possible with your boat.   Happy Holidays to you and the other Amel owners!

It's not a question of "wussiness", or "correctness" or any other kind of value judgement.  It's just that different people use their boats differently.  If everybody used their boat in exactly the same way, then we'd all have exactly the same boat, and wouldn't that be a boring world?

We have certainly found ourselves in situations where we NEEDED to be [someplace@sometime] and the engine was required to get there.  We try (and usually manage) to avoid such situations. Other people do not have that luxury/desire and there is no reason they should feel I think I am superior to them because of it.

I try really hard (but don't always succeed) to incorporate my rational for a recommendation so people can evaluate if it applies to their personnel situation. Unless I feel really strongly about a sa fety matter, I always try to say "I would..." and avoid "You should...".
