Night run was good, we arrived at Green Turtle. Not with out a hiccup. As I was backing into the slip I put MMC into neutral went into neutral then started blinking and all the sudden of went full throttle reverse, killed the motor when I heard it rev up. No damage to boat, but we broke a dock piling. Everyone is ok and no one got hurt. Parts and a mechanic are getting flown in tomorrow.

Will post pictures from when we were at sea later.

Bet your pee stream was excessive when that thing went full throttle reverse! Glad all is OK.

I just heard that the Bahamian Government has issued a "Boat Shoe Alert" for the Abacos!

Did the pee get on your shoes? It would have gotten on mine!

I hope he wasn't wearing knickers. He would never get them cleaned out. Of course, Oliver probably doesn't even know what knickers are.

Wish y'all would stop talking about weak pee streams and wet shoes. It takes me longer to start peeing than I suspect Oliver would spend in the head total time.

Well, since the thread has drifted slightly, here is some advice and old guy gave me. I had stopped at a rest stop on I-81 in Virginia when he came in. This is what he said.

"Son, never pass up a chance to pee, and never ever trust a fart".

Yacht Tech to the rescue! Diagnosed the problem being the micro processor as we replaced control head and sea trial'ed it and had to come home under wing engine power. Robert got the unit installed and he is now programming it!

Oliver, the incident with the Micro Commander must have been creepy. I'm also glad no one was hurt. That could have been really bad. Good catch on your part dousing the engine.

This is inspiring me to launch a new thread concerning MMCs, which have bugged me for years.
