I would've hoisted sails and pulled him in by the wind! ~LL

I've done that before! Usually it is rental boats that have ventured our way not realizing how much fuel those big outboards guzzle, and that there isn't a gas station on every corner!

It's a Bayliner he's used to being towed, he's just happy it's not on fire or sinking.

Re: This has to sting...

It may seem counter intuitive but sometimes power boaters may need your assistance. Good for your friends for helping out another boater.
It may sting a bit for the power boater but at least he got back to the dock and can sort out his problems from there. Besides that small outboard motor did not make a whole lot of noise coming up the fairway so who else was looking besides you & your camera?
Now that the internet knows about it thanks to your blog, it will go viral. Shame in cyberspace!
Still, good seamanship to help out other boaters of whatever stripe.

Any port in a storm. Cheers to the skipper that helped a fellow mariner.

I'm not going to take advantage of the irony. That stinkpotter's stinkpotting buddies are taking care of that at stinkpot camp right now.

I used to buy Bayliners and loved em'...where else could you get a 20' boat, brand new under warranty every five years...

Re: This has to sting...

all is good for rendering assistance to a fellow mariner in distress. It may have hurt his pride, but it is better than hurting the boat by drifting into something. Pride heals, Glassfibre takes money
