Crazy dudes, under planned, under equipped, under crewed. Sail level - no steps to my saloon to fall down

We have all done stupid things at one time or another. It's only when it catches up with you that you get famous.

I'd rather be obscure
Other than articles in Cruising World about how much fun I'm having I hope no one here ever posts a news report on or about me.

So, what is going to happen to his boat?

Finders keepers?

What is the law about this. If it is still afloat.....

Someone will find it as salvage and if they can, will tow it back to port and sell it. Finders keepers

That sort of accident happens more than we hear about......

Last month I was on-board HIGH COTTON dockside getting a price on some "teak work" below when the guy didn't step "squarely" on the top step to the cabin (facing the salon) and bounced down with his head hitting each step as he landed on the cabin floor, completely dazed!

And this guy has spent his LIFE on-board boats...........
all I could think of is I'm glad I sent in that INSURANCE PAYMENT!
AND I DO have "non-skid" strips on each step.

Only thing hurt was his PRIDE!

Maybe he spent his life getting hurt on boats???

Just because someone has done something, doesn't mean they are good at it.

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.
