jarcher is right - you couldn't have started the engine without selecting at least one of your batteries - that's what I get for posting when tired. It sounds like you're fine samhamt.

Is this true for all charging systems? What about an outboard with an electric AND rope start, started with a pull and with no battery attached?

Most outboards will be fine, provided you either run them without a battery the whole time or with a battery the whole time. It is only when you have a battery and remove it or vice versa that it seems to be a problem .

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.
