Don't disagree, but...

Based on that logic, first responders wouldn't want anyone to drive automobiles, right?

Risk management, we both know that, and have agreed on it before.

A guy who builds a hot rod, isn't a better driver, but if it breaks down on the road, he has a better chance of fixing it than the average car owner.

Boating rules are simple. Boat handling is a skill that can be learned (or so I hear...).

Mechanical aptitude is a skill that some have, some develop, and some just don't or can't.

It can come in very handy in the cruising scene, both in saving money, and in trouble shooting and repair during an emergency.

This guy sounds like he has "the knack", which, in my opinion, puts him ahead of the game in accomplishing his goals.
