bunch a years back a friend who knew nothing about sailing bought a hobie. Ask me to take him out and give some pointers. Well to make a long story short, Once under some way the port pontoon started lifting. He was convinced we were going over, which we weren't at that point, so he jumped off. Seriously. my counter weight literally bailed on me. Up went the port side and shortly there after starboard dug in deep. Game over.

We both got wet, I had a blast, and he sold the boat the following month. Go figure.
