I know that I " Sailed" into Great Salt Pond , Block Island last summer...but had my engine on and in neutral....something I often do...I wasn't doing it to charge my batteries...but to have greater maneuverabilty if I needed it.
I know the feeling. When I teach sail-only maneuvers in close quarters (docking, mooring balls, etc..) I have the engine going ... just in case.
And thanks for getting some input.
