Comments about Books Why Didn't I Think of That:

By far the book is simply filled with silliness.

Most of the "good" ideas are common sense that most people that sail figure out on their own. Some of the worst ideas may be illegal, including: uses for bleach wherein the bleach ends up overboard, and creative anchor lighting that may not conform to the collision regulations.
