The perils of reversing with an outboard engine

I spent a pleasant hour on Moonfleet pottering along the Broads. Then I tried to reverse it back into it's mooring: Much sweating later the little beast is tied up safely again but I definitely need more practice!
Plus points .. I didn't hit anything, no-one got wet and I think I amused the wife.
Oh well, not too bad for my 1st solo effort.
Remember the experienced skipper who was going to teach me? He's off at sea again so it was try on my own or wait months.
I'm glad I tried but next time I will not take the whole family along to watch.
