Sorry I don’t get it!

Why is trying to avoid a problem being suggested as a backwards refusal to consider alternatives?

Matoi’s question was about how to avoid a problem. If he modifies his boat but then sails another that isn’t modified, how will he deal with the situation?

I agree that you can modify your boat to help but surely other non-expense methods can be considered rather than ridiculed. Sorry Swiebertje but this is the first reply I’ve seen on this forum that is short-sighted. The forum is just that – a forum for discussion about ideas.
