I'm not feeling the love. Perhaps we should ditch this forum before we all need therapy.

how do people feel is the best way to support ones self when at the wim of the wild ocean on their boat?
what parts do you feel a support boat should carry to best support a skiff during a regatta?
and positive stories of support boats during a regatta?

what parts do you feel a support boat should carry to best support a skiff during a regatta? -Gatorade, small (one handed) sandwiches, a spare jib, Roll of Duct tape, Spool of 1/8" spectra, and a spare tiller extension.
and positive stories of support boats during a regatta? Getting a tow in as the sun went down on a very cold and breathless Puget Sound
and negitive stories of support boats during a regatta? A different day, a differen tow; the tow boat gunning the engine as we were picking up the tow line for the next in line - crunch. See comment about duct-tape above.
