"reinforces the never approach anything solid that you don't want to hit...you just never know.'

I was approaching a dock in a Catalina 27, put it in reverse, tried to apply some throttle, and the throttle lever came off in my hand. Fortunately, idle in reverse was sufficient to almost stop the boat.
