Couldn't agree more. Across the pond in Buzzards Bay a couple of weeks ago, we sailed close hauled in moderate wind and blew away two boats that were motoring. I really don't understand why people have a sailboat if they're just going to motor around in it...

A lovely sunny day at Ardnamurchan, moderate westerly, me (little junk rigged boat) happily beating west, making good progress. Not one, but two bermudan sloops, motoring. Downwind. No sail set. Not the only ones I've seen in the Sound of Mull, either. Sailing would be faster, quieter, more comfortable. I despair, I really do, at the... what? Laziness? Lack of skill?
