Crocs

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

Joesaila 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!

Actually they do keep such stats, Mike. And the most common answer, in answer to the question of what the man was doing before going overboard, was "urinating". It's been a while since I've read anything on it but it seems like the number was like 40% of the MOB cases. No other specific activity broke single digits in frequency. It's obvious, from this data, that women stay on the boat better! (g)

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!

I think it was that same blast of air, when it went through Racine, that created havoc at Reefpoint. Two docks were made uninhabitable as the wind caused structural failures. From my understanding, all boats on those two docks were moved to other slips. Fortunately, the docks appear to be more damaged than any boats. From what I hear, two boats may have suffered some modest damage.
