Re: Help what sail to raise 1st?

My 15' boat only has oars, so I can't motor into the wind to raise the main. And in my O'Day Mariner or O'Day 22 it works just fine to raise the jib/genoa first (motor off) and sail close to the wind before raising the main as it luffs. What would you do if your motor quit with no sails up?
