Not reading the actual thread yet because spoilers.
I just today got the time to sit down and read this, and just now started the sailboat scene, and damn.
Moderately experienced sailor here. I've been -out- in boats like that. We've owned several small and not-so-small sailboats in my life. And an open boat in arctic (okay, antarctic, still FORKING COLD) waters in 25+ knot winds? YIPE. We're talking "Why, yes, officer, I'd rather challenge a polar bear to a fistfight while armed with only a butter knife" conditions here. Add in an amateur crew? Even this particular trio?
*wince* doesn't even BEGIN to describe it.
