Hey, be easy on her, she cannot be that insane. She just wanted to get out on the water, go sailing, and get away from this crazy world we all live in! Just like the rest of us.

Could very easily be Alzheimer's or Dementia....it's starting to affect people a lot younger and based on the fact that she was still sitting there.....?

Glad you got your boat back, however. Hopefully the damage will be an easy fix.

I don't know this as fact, of course. I wonder how mortified Mike will be when he stops by to check the damage to his boat, and finds it where and as he left it.

Nice, but she really should do it ON HER OWN BOAT- dont you think?

Fixed the deck dings with West last night, we'll touch up the Awlgrip later.

my father flipped out on me once about the boat not being secured. i ran 2 minutes to grab some beer and left the companionway doors open. he happened to be driving by and was waiting for me when i got back. mind you, there is nothing of real value on board, a vhf is about it, everything else i take on and off that is valuable. the funny part is is that he has no lock on the engine, or the fuel lazarette so anyone could theoretically just steal the whole damn boat if they wanted!

Sadly, when I look around my marina....I bet there's a bunch of folks who wish someone would steal their boat....
