I didn't mean that all of the things had to be done, but is there a certain problem that keeps you up at night or makes you cross your fingers when you turn the key?

On my boat which is smaller I really don't see myself hanging off the stern to pull the cord and shift to forward. An electric start motor might help though.

I realize the spirit of the question was how can I do this easily and cheaply and, trust me I've pondered the same thing.
