I mean, what is the current NEED for sailboats? Any sailboat, anywhere? I can see some third world fishermen needing to use crude, home made sails in the absence of fossil fuels and engines, but in America?
We have no need for any sailboats, for any reason. And people DROWN falling off of them.
I think it's time for a national ban; they're just a nusaince that leads to death, and for no good purpose.
