My step mom told me a story about her and her girlfriends sailing a centerboard dink out of Washington Sailing Marina, and getting the board stuck in the muddy bottom right off the end of the runway at National. Someone came out to help them and ended up falling in. I still laugh when I think about the entertainment anyone on a plane looking down would have had.

Of course the difference is no one thought twice about a couple of teenagers messing around the airport - this would've been in the late 50's...don’t try that today
