In my defense I never suggested any of those ideas because if things went wrong the potential for damage was far worse than the need for speed or cold beer.

Forget about loss of life, there was real potential with any of those solutions to scratch paint or more drastic the wood. And we know how Jim is about the wood.

I was going to suggest bump starting the engine which we have actually done on the tugs, but that requires speed and you had little of that at the time.

As Frederic mentioned there is also the possibility of starting the engine in reverse. Google the effects of that, it is not good.
