A color TV won't barrel roll or spinout and eject you from your home.

Spoken like a true sailboater.....

And oh yes it will if you don't know how to drive it. That's like saying you wouldn't build a motorcycle because they only have two wheels and could fall over!................

Some people are good drivers, and some should just be owners.

From driving a TV ?? I doubt it. When I said "that it will if you don't know how to drive it" I was refering to the TV.

I've been tossed at 80, and no emergency room was involved. c

Seriously, how many accidents can be attributed to the "slide and hook" of a step bottom OFF THE RACE COURSE?? I don't think there are many high performance offshore boaters that are into high speed turns any more than there are high performance motorcyclists that love to drive in the rain.

Fear and respect of the machine and nature is what keeps one safe, more so than the design of the vehicle...............

Do a search, during the summer months there were spinnouts nearly every weekend for a while.

You need to read my next installment about the insurance industry.

When you got "Tossed", were you wearing the lanyard and a vest?

I did not mean to imply that it was new, only that it seems to be prevalent in todays performance boats.
