Ouch! I feel bruised just by watching those clumsy attempts at disembarking boats. Most of those had to hurt . . . but good for laughs.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Excellent!!! I am going to show this at the boating classes that I teach. Anybody can go in the drink when they are not expecting to.

Last month in fact. Rowed to shore from mooring with madam in the stern and number one genoa bagged for the sail maker in the bow. Madam disembarked, I forgot about the weight of the sail and propelled dinghy straight under the wharf. Not enough clearance for dinghy, sail and your's truely. Was a nice enough day for a swim I suppose. Still and all it's good to lighten up other peoples day.

TDW- LOL... The sail stayed dry I hope... wet sails in sailbags are a pain to handle, and heavy too.

Oh, some of those must have been so painful. How do you think those people managed to capsize that yacht when they were tossing that person overboard?
Did it have a centreboard that wasn't put down, or was is just an unstable boat?

i'm voting on a combination of both..board up and unstable, and a load of stupid people on the bow...
i hate to say it but i laughed my happy ass off watching this (darwin awards came to mind in most cases). this is not to say i haven't done..uhm..marginally questionable stuff..but dayum..never has it been caught on tape...(well..there are those other tapes..but that's another topic )

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.
