Not really sailing, trying to get sailing ....
I was backing out of the slip, looking behind me to make sure no one was coming down the fairway. I turned to look forward just in enough time to realize I had NOT disconnected the shore power, slammed the transmission into forward and gave it full throttle (causing the admiral and my daughters to look at me like I had lost it!), and narrowly missed pulling the shore power stand into the water. Bet I won't make that mistake again!
