overbored is on a distinguished road
if you hoist before shutting down the motor and the sail does not hoist and you cannot sail with some control you may need to restart the motor but what if it dies not restart. if you douse and then try to start the motor what if it does not start. I always leave the engine running untill the sails are set and I am sailing in control of the situation. I always start the engine before dousing to be able to maintain control of the situation.
