Bigger is Better

I've heard it said many times, that "too much is better than not enough",
and while this may not be the case when choosing SCUBA weights,
 or eating fiber bars,
it most certainly was the case the other day in Coronado.

Oh sure, Sean could have just used a little boat trailer, or a smaller hoist,
but then he'd miss out on all the fun and bragging rights of using the biggest honking hoist he could find to launch one of his sandoli.

I mean really, suppose there was an earthquake at that very point when the boat was hanging precariously from a substandard launching device.
Oh no, my friends - bigger is better, and better safe than sorry.

And in the "Too much is..." quote department, I found an interesting parallel:
"Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right"
     -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Good quote, but I think this one is just a little better:
"Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough"
     -Mark Twain

I wonder if those two guys were drinking buddies.
