Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

Perhaps not so much about seamanship - but here is my "chuckle contribution"

Dropped a piece of metal overboard, while in the marina (forget what it was, but that's for a different thread). Oops.

Not to worry, I have a magnet.

Oops, magnet is still in its original plastic container.

Not to worry, open it.

Magnet, thankfully, comes fully equipped with a length of twine.

Grab end of twine and drop magnet overboard.

Oops. The twine was not tied to the magnet.

Not to worry. It wouldn't have done any good: the piece of metal I dropped overboard was made of stainless steel. Duh.
