How about a real challenge: boarding a boat on a mooring, when you arrive in a dingy.
If the boat doesn't have a swim platform or walk through transom, it can be comical, dangerous or both, depending on your point of view. Even with a nice swim platform it's a challenge.
The main problem is holding the dink steady while you try to stand up and grab something sturdy while not tipping the dink over or letting it move away as you step. My wife is very graceful about it. My 75 year old Dad is not, but he's only fallen in once. Now add coolers and bags of gear, and the people in the mooring field get a nice comedy show!
