Been their done that. Crocs are very dangerous when combined with water. Get them off of your boat or you will be hurt again.

I'm a contender! Went for an overnight sail w my 6 y.o. grandaughter and was in reverse while setting my anchor. There was a loud boomp, some grating sound and I looked to see my new Portland Pudgy dingy being sucked under the boat into my prop! So I grabbed a mask and snorkel [thankful it was aboard] and jumped into some breath grabbing cold water and cut the rope. It was as tight as could be. The entire bridle was gobbled and one side popped out. [while staying in contact w grandaughter] Minor damage to the dingy, major damage to my ego. I was surrounded by fellow boaters and hope I don't end up on t.v. or worse. Rule #2, careful while backing down!
[if anyone repeats this story I will deny any and all knowledge, to quote an infamous pol...."I don't recall it"???]

|speciald||Years ago I leaned on a forward life line to check the anchor as the tide was really running out behind Cumberland Island. The fitting chose that moment to fail and I was suddenly in the water. Now I was going out with the tide. I managed to grab the tail pipe of the exhaust and looked up at the folded swim ladder that I could not reach. My wife was in the shower with my young daughter and could not hear my yelling. Luckily she finally responded to my pounding on the hull and I was saved from a trip out the St. Mary's inlet. Since then I trail a small line to allow the swim ladder to be deployed by someone in the water!|

|MIKEMCKEE||How about the number of Guy's that are found after they have fallen off the boat with their zipper's down. I don't think the Coast Guard keeps a record of these thing's but I willing to bet it's higher than you think.|
