MK, I've been following some of your threads but don't remember all the details of your boat.

Could you describe the setup?

What kind of motor does she have? Diesel inboard, or gas outboard? If it's an outboard, does it have an electric start or a pull cord? If you're not sure about these things, let us know and we can help you figure it out.

I second all the advice to get an experienced sailor to help you out. In the meantime you might as well learn as much as you can, so that when the experienced sailor comes along and pulls all the magic ropes and pushes the magic buttons, it will be at least a little familiar to you.
