Default Got wet

I did something for the first time in my life today. I fell overboard. Scary. Then very funny. I realized how serious of a situation that it could have turned into after I got back aboard (thank God for my friend and the swim ladder). I was only in about 5ft of water on a flat pulling in a little anchor rope and I just stepped right off the bow (new boat - shorter bow). It can happen to anyone/anytime.

I usually fall off in the driveway or the back yard and yes dirt hurts.

Show me someone that hasn't fallen off a boat and I'll show you a couch potato.

Falling off the boat wasn't so bad.


Falling off the dock is what really hurts.

The key is to get up quick and look like "I meant to do that". Took a header over the back of the motors in the marina in Key West last year. Trying to wash the back of the motors and slipped on a soapy deck. Got lucky, no damage, and only one guy saw me and he was cool. Lost my hat though!

Wish I had a video of it.
