West Marine Offshore
was armed and stowed inside its original plastic front/mesh back package on the upper crew berth. Heavy rains somehow found their way inside the boat (that never happens
) and wet the bunk and the gear
No problemo... I'll just take these soggy things topside and let 'ol Sol dry them out. Funny
thing but 3 hours later I went up and found the PFD
had inflated - it looked like 10lbs of s*** stuffed into a 3lb sack. Hmm - I don't remember falling overboard
.. Maybe I'm not supposed to inflate this thing inside the package?
Let's see - water
plus sun = steam, so the little auto-inflator dissolving pill did its thing and fired the cartridge. Dang it....
At least the thing held air the way it should have.... I should start a new TV show.. ASSV 'America's Stupidest Sailors Videos'....
