Singlehanding to and from the dock

Another habit I developed is to ensure that my reverse gear is fully functional LONG before I need it. This can be especially important if you have a non-fixed prop and you are relying on the prop mechanism to properly engage in reverse.

While it has never happened that reverse gear failed me, I feel better knowing that I would find out while I still had some good options available.
