Every "crisis" the gov dumps a few million in cash to promote sail.

So far , useless spending .

It was an interesting concept 30 years ago when I was studying naval architecture in college. It still is an interesting concept, and maybe one of these decades somebody will actually build one. I would like to see that day!
