It's interesting - after reading through those 100+ Lifesling case studies that JRP put up, starting the engine seems to be a bad idea in most cases if you can get back to the COB by sail.

In any case, it seems like it's pretty critical to do a check for any lines in the water prior to starting the engine and should be part of the procedure list.

Have you guys seen those freakin' case studies?
