Alan Lucas recalls that he always stood up in his outboard-powered dinghy. “A practice I worried about and gave him a friendly dig about it, but he persisted through rain and shine – both before and after his knee replacement – so I guess he died fully understanding the risks he took and certainly living the life he loved.”
Standing up. I don't like that. A fair number of people do it, and I notice all over them old to very old. None of the younger cruisers do it. Maybe because younger tend to get larger out boards, drive faster and keep a low center of gravity to keep the dink going faster.
