Not quite the same class, but . . .

When our kids were young we used to bring along the plastic slide from their playset and sling it over the side of the boat. Big fun!

every seagoing vessel should have an emergency evacuation slide.

Re: For the Man (or Woman!) who has everything........

A 58 ft houseboat arrived at the marina several months ago with a plastic slide attached to the forward overhead deck. Of course the slide was over the starboard side of the boat. Remember now this is a 15ft beam vessel trying to get into a 16ft wide slip. Guess what Happens when the slide decided it could not move the 10ft above water piling. Any guesses? I should have been faster with my camera.
