      I have commented on this before. We get a lot of transient cruisers (SE
      AK), many of them large (35'-55') auxiliary cruisers. I fly for a living
      and I bet I see less than 5% with any sail up. It is subject for amazed
      comment in the cockpit as in "look at that one, they have the sails up!"
      In a normal summer I will only see 2-3 sailboats actually sailing.
