Sailing is practically free transportation. The adjustment of the sails can be automated so a single human operator can run the whole ship.
Failing to exploit this is simply stupid.
States someone who obviously has never set foot on a sailboat.
Sailing is akin to standing in a cold shower and ripping up hundred dollar bills.
I was born and raised next to the ocean. I grew up jigging for cod with my grandfather. My father taught sailing to the sea cadets. I've been on sailboats, worked on freighter ships. Numerous members of my family have owned boats of their own. I personally never had enough interest to actually buy one of my own, but I expect that will change over the coming decades.
But thanks for implying I don't know anything about what I'm talking about, asshole.
