I successfully employed the KTL method yesterday motoring my boat, which has been out of the water five years, 45 miles to my home. My fingers are still sore from crossing them so tight. Let the trust-building begin!
Glad to hear the motor didn't let you down. Why all motoring? That's always the bit I trust the least. My first sail of any substance with this boat (~35NM around Cape Ann) is coming up this weekend providing my winter yard gets their shit together and launches it this week.
