Mark, I wouldn't mind betting you won't miss it for long. The first time you chuck your stuff on board, throw off, (or haul in), your dock lines, and head out, with no sails to bend on first...or unfurl, saying, "OK, what's the wind direction, which tack should we be on...oh, that's right, we just aim for where we want to go, and bugger the wind...and no halyards to pull, and no sheets to grind...wow!" You'll be sold, and no regrets...other than the need for engine sound at all times when underway, maybe. But even that won't last long. Like RTF above said...
