Don Casey also has several good books to read.
One thing that I highly recommend, is that you turn off the shore water connection after filling your freshwater tanks. This will reduce the chance of something leaking due to the pressure caused by the shore water connection,. And if something does leak, the amount of water that fills the boat is limited by your tank capacity, not by how long the faucet is running for before you find the leak.
I've seen boats that were sunk due to the inability of their bilge pumps to keep up with the incoming shore water connection.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
