It is an image that has come to me during different discussions (internet and IRL), and seemed appropriate here as Gaianne is basically arguing against something that would worsen the situation in the lifeboats (snap back).

Perhaps it can be better formulated as: "At what time do you stop sacrificing the lifeboats to plug the holes in the ship and start tearing things from the ship to make make-shift lifeboats?"
