Funny you should mention this. There is an article in Motor Boating this month about how long time sailors are turning to powerboats. I think there may be more cross-over than many people care to admit. I've always loved powerboating, and could never really get into sailing, except I have to admit those little Sunfish sail boats they have at resorts are a blast if you get them in a stiff wind and some waves (especially ocean waves). I've had them get air before.
