  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Oh, my. What a great story! Thanks.


Did Tillerman link to this story? I didn't see it. I love the final touch...a child's lifejacket to add insult to injury. Well done.


I can see you now.


I really enjoyed this story -- would like to also have it on my web site

You're more than welcome too. Adam


As an Auxiliarist -- we're usually bored and eager for a chance to be useful. And the more the boater overreacts, the more likely the CG station is to let us get involved instead of telling them to call SeaTow.




Oh you did make my day. It is a frosty day in Iowa furthermore, I am known in this region as the world''s worst sailor still alive to tell the tale. Your story helped my ego.
