I found a link to this article on a different forum. It's about flying, but the topic of discussion is directly related to boating and go/no-go decisions.

How to say "No"

I'm sometimes my own worst enemy when it comes to saying "No". I'm the one who puts the pressure on to "just do it" when I have my nagging doubts. Time is not the factor that makes me want to say yes, it's the weather.

I sometimes have to give myself a slap upside the head and remember that "no go" is a good option.

Hear yah. I've reached (descended to?) the age where I try hard to avoid driving at night.

It is better to be on the ground (or land) wishing you were in the air (or water) than in the air (or water) wishing you were on the ground (or land).
