Yeah, no worries...you'll get confidence once you've had some time with the old girl. I twice had our Volvo break down this summer on a 3 month cruise. It just takes time, money and patience to get things back in order. I keep our boat in as good of condition as I possibly can, but things can and will still come up.
By the way, I second the advice of getting Tow Boat U.S. towing insurance. If you're a Boat U.S. member the insurance is only about $35/yr. and can come in handy. I was towed once this summer when the engine died 3 miles offshore on a dead calm day. The tow bill was nearly $600 but I didn't pay a dime and was safe in the harbor within 2 hours.
