"In an effort to prepare for an emergency, I force myself to imagine what would happen if DRIVER, while rolling along at hull speed, slammed into a shipping container, or a log, or the debris from a fallen satellite. What if a giant rent is opened up in the hull, and water begins streaming in? What would we do first? Take the sails down? Bail? Find the extent of the damage? Launch the life raft? Have a shot of Cognac?"
