Mike21- you should keep the engine in gear at an idle while raising the sail. Tie the tiller if needed. If the engine is not in gear, you are unpowered and drifting. Not good.

If solo, set up all your lines, uncoil them, get everything ready so you only have to pull the halyard, cleat, and trim the sail(s).
