If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space.

This has never been on OSO but I love this poem and it is easily relevant to boat racing.
=====================================

The Critic

It is not the Critic who counts.
It is not the man who points out where the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

It is the man who is actually in the arena…
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs, who falls short again and again, who spends himself at a worthy cause…

It is the man, who in the end, at best, knows the triumph of high achievement, but who – if failing – at least greatly so that his place shall never be among those timid souls who know neither Victory nor Defeat.
================================
(Words to live by)

This was a long time ago but I recall Gordo or Too Old making a comment about a bad situation...it was something to the effect of being bent over and raped with a duo-prop.

I can't remember where I saw the boat, but someone had anodized a plaque on the dash of their catamaran that said "If you're afraid of flying or going fast and are going to tell me to slow down, GET THE **** OFF MY BOAT!"

I always liked that.
