Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?
Heh.. Well done, Denise!
Last time I got myself flustered like that was heading back to the marina with Mrs H on board after a nice quiet sail on the bay, hence I was in that state of not wanting ANYTHING to rock her boat, shall we say.
Go to start the engine prior to getting the sails down and it just cranks and cranks and doesn't fire. WTF!! I try it again.. and again.. and the marina's getting closer.. I can see Mrs H starting to get nervous.. and I look around and notice the "stop" pulled out. DOH!! Pushed it back in and engine fires up straight away.
I'm sure it happens to the best of us sometimes... but, since I'm not the best, I just wish it didn't happen to me.
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
