need a laugh, dingy failure tonight

well the title says it, i brought my boat to the anchorage tonight. after anchoring a i took out my cheapy dingy and inflated it nice and tight for the row to shore. well i got in the dingy, or pool toy as my wife calls it, i got nice and settled untied from the boat. then i felt a little water hit my right side, as i though great i have a leak the whole bottom came loose. i got wet up to my chest, managed to swim while laying on the out side ring of the dingy i got back to the boat. now thankfully i put my cell phone in a zip lock bag. as i was laughing and calling my wife i was thinkingi was going to have to swim to shore... in baltimores inner harbor. i guy in a real dingy came by and flagged him down for a ride to shore.

btw the water temp felt around 60 degrees maybe 65

any baltimore area people have an old dingy the want to sell cheap ?
