John Vigor's black box theory

Browsing through old boat related links I rediscovered this article that's well worth reading, then pondering its significance...

Black Box Theory.

Hi Murray.

This is a little like, the more I prepare the more lucky I am.

I have a small sixth sense and when my bells in my ears start ringing I pay attention.

Thanks for posting.
