When all was done and I was finally back in my proper boat, we both had a good laugh at ourselves. the parting words from my friend in the other boat was "I'm telling everyone" followed by a little chuckle so I certainly won't hear the end of this any time soon...what the hey, sheet happens .

Your mental image is likely not far off the actual image.

This is a fish tote, double walled and used to transport fish when the fleet comes in and various other uses.

Needless to say, no one tied up the boat and the rest of the story needs no words but me being the driver, I can't help feel that somehow in some way I may have been at fault. ...lesson learned.
Twenty years ago, a rookie and I were patrolling the South Fork of the Skagit River one frosty January night in a 14' Lund. We pulled up along the bank to walk in to spot we wanted to check. After checking the spot, we went back to the boat and it was gone. There was a bridge downstream about three miles, so we hoofed it down a road that parralleled the river to see if we could beat the boat downstream. We made it to the bridge in short order with neither of us having a heart attack and then waited for the boat to arrive. It did not. While waiting, we discussed at length who tied up the boat. Each believed the other had done it. $h1t happens.

Yeah, but it was me who had to call for someone to come and fetch us so we could get another boat to find the first one we lost. Lesson learned.

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.

it was daylight the next morning. Stuck in some branches about 100 yards downstream from where we lost it. Anyway, I didn't want Steve to feel lonely. Mission accomplished, I hope.
