IMO, when you go cruising in the woop-woop you forego all such niceties as fire departments, coastal rescue
, even police protection. Face it, guys, such things just are not there.
Just where the woop-woop begins is open to discussion, but even in nominally civilized countries like our favorite Australia
, it is very easy to find spots where no such services are available. These spots can be only a few hours sail from major population centers.
for the lack of fire-fighting crews is just silly, IMO.
