Don't feel bad. Here's my own latest stupid thing to do... have been visiting a certain anchorage many times in the past where there is a short cut through some rocks that I know how to just slip between -- in my *previous* boat -- but my new boat has bilge keels and it didn't occur to me just how narrow that short cut was, nor was I really thinking about the change in keel orientation, until I got intimate with the rocks on one side -- being used to slipping the center keel between them rather than having two keels sticking out to each side!
Sailing is a continual learning (and humbling) process ;-)
Fortunately the only damage was to my ego.
If a man speaks at sea where there is no woman to hear, is he still wrong?
