Re: Learned something(s) today

Thanks! I read the BoatUS article before, that's part of what had me rethinking the idea of trying to swim at the dock.

They hauled the boat on Friday and got the sheet off. I went there today and tested the system. I didn't leave the slip (alone, somewhat windy, still getting used to the boat), but I confirmed that the transmission went into forward and reverse and that the boat actually moved forward and backward.
