A funel whistle?
We pulled up at a dock
and this guy had one of those boathooks that you clip another hook with a line through it and you are meant to be able to latch your line onto bolards automaticaly....
Advertised in Boat Shows etc.
So I says: "Hey! You got one of them sticks!? Show me how it works!"
Well his wife races up and sits in the cockpit
watcxhing as her hubby goes into the speil just like at the Boat Show
- but Wife is already in Hysterics! Hubbie gets frustrated as he tries to make the dang thing work!
Wife KNOWS it wont work! Man demands the #$%%^&* to work! I crack up laughing and he is still at it while we walk away.
Moral of the story: Store the stick next to the whistlin Funnel.....
