Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

Tie between leaving extra battery cables disconnected and starting a mini boat fire and sailing home from the Forida Keys in Biscayne Bay single handed in a 50 knot microburst and getting scared then trying to anchor. Got all beat up and the anchor did not hold so I had to pull it up and get underway again in all that weather. Trying to pull an anchor up in 50 knot winds with no windlass while slamming all over the place was the worst.
