Re: Things lost in the water

We just finished our first season with a boat. I was out with my stepfather (who taught me how to sail when I was a kid) and the winch handle slipped out of his hand. I wish I had a camera at the exact moment it happened. The look on his face was priceless - within a split second it changed from surprise, to shock, to chagrin.

I started laughing my ass off and told him not to worry, went down below and grabbed the spare. The next day I discovered how expensive winch handles were. Glad I didn't know it at the time - forced cheerfulness wouldn't have been nearly as much fun.
