We now have a couple of generations of boaters who've never plotted a course on paper or tried to navigate by that means. How far are we from being generations away from being able to handle a boat strictly by gears? How many people today could dock a boat under sail, playing off the wind and current? Today we spend money rather than develop skills. Seems to me that takes a lot of the fun and pride out of boating. I know that I have very little desire to do what everybody and anybody can do. That's boring.
