He actually started talking about guns.

New asymetrical spinnaker / flasher and a light weight reacher / drifter.

No more motoring in light winds, no more worries about injector bolts.

Context is important.

Less motoring is not the same as no motoring. They were in a no motoring situation before due to transmission problems. The motor rebuild was done because it was convenient due to the lead time for machining the transmission parts.

What's the context for bringing up guns in this thread?

I would happily go without motoring all together, if the harbors allowed it.

There's no reason for me to motor anywhere else but inside marinas.

When this diesel engine dies, I'll get an electric motor.

PS Keeping your motor in gear when sailing will make your transmission last longer.
