  •  8 Hours Training: In Small Sailboating (8+ / 0-)

    I've coped with winds up to low hurricane force in sudden thunderstorms, with people who had 80 hours' training and couldn't cope with a real life emergency. I'd frankly expect that most sailors with only 80 hours' training would be unable, that's only 2 weeks which is less than a first year summer junior sailing camp.

    And we're talking a technology of ropes and strings that moves 100 times slower than bullets.

    Now if a weapon license included 8 hours' training in surprise ambush gunplay, they'd at least be comparing apples to apples.
