It gets even funnier. First day out on a new-to-me Morgan 32 sailboat with wife and four 'racer' friends. Beautiful day with lots of wind. Powered into the bay and raised the sails. Wife was at the helm. With the boat now sailing, I asked her to kill the engine to which she replied there was no stop button or cable. I muttered something and returned to the cockpit and discovered she was right. After about 15 minutes of head scratching by a cockpit full of 'very experienced sailors' I found a fuel tank shut-off valve and finally stopped the engine.
A while later, she found the owner's manual in the chart table and showed me that page . . . . . RTFM
