That's one (of many) reasons I have a checklist that I have a crew member read to me as I go through the boat making sure valves and hatches are closed, shore power is disconnected, etc., before we shove off. Too many things to remember on a sailboat, forgetting anyone of which can ruin your day! I laminate the list at a copy store, and keep it with the key to the ignition. Here is a link to a thread I started on the topic if interested:
