Re: The run aground poll
I have run a ground so much that I don't even care to think about it. I lost count years ago. Actually, it never occurred to me to count.
I have to negotiate a narrow channel getting my 25 footer out of and into my slip and if a norther blows the water out of the bay, I have been known to just sit in the slip, on the bottom and just list a bit.
I have run down marked (sorry about that!) and unmarked crab traps, miscellaneous unknown debris, a number of sand bars, an oyster reef or two and to crown my indignity, I ran a trailer.
Yes, I was sitting on the boat ramp with my little Galilee in the fading twilight trying to figure out why it just won't get on the trailer even though I was cranking the loading winch for all I was worth. Hint! When I lifted the center board, she slid home like she meant it!
But then, it is all quite understandable, 'cause what could a 'possum possibly know about boats?
Have FUN! (I do!)
