I guess there's always Youtube for some boating laughs!

I kinda figured this one would end the way it did!
I was cringing looking at him hanging off the starboard side of the hull with the engine in gear and a hard left helm....just waiting for him to let go and get into the prop.

The skipper certainly got what he deserved, a DUI. Too bad most boaters don't know drinking and driving a boat is potentially a felony and just as serious of a crime as drinking and driving a car...with the same legal consequences, such as losing your drivers license, jail time, insurance increases, enormous fines and possibly a felony conviction for the rest of your life.

Yeap, Alan and I are struggling with the weather here. It's just evil

That's D2 (daughter no 2) in my ripping little sailing ding. She's a bit grumpy there's no wind and she has to row.

This long weekend meant time with the kids, so my outboard still has no pull chord, and my hatch boards still don't have a shiny new varnish job.
I work a swing shift, so I won't actually have a weekend again until next month(that's 7 on 1 off, 7 on 1 off, 7 on 4 off), I still suprise myself with what I can accomplish with those one day breaks.
