Horrible.. My wife and I went on a boat-ride yesterday, with friends...what started as a "several hour" trip, turned into about 10hrs. 2p - launched... 2:10p - trying to open a bee- er...I mean "SODA" bottle , the top of the bottle broke and took a scoop out of my right hand. Like a mellon-baller, sorta. today I went to the clinic; they had to cauterize (sp?) the wound, because I nicked a blood vessel. Hurt like a SonofaBitch. Hard to type... 4:30 - boat nearly sinks; takes on about 10" of water (shallow, low-riding boat)...front 1/3 of bow was at or just below the waterline. 5:45 - EXCELLENT Seafood dinner at Doug's Chowder House on Lake Union, Seattle, WA. 7:00 - Head home. 1/4 mile from shore, boat dies, unable to restart 7:05 - passers by offer a tow rope back to a dock 8:00 - Vessel assist tows me and boat owner to nearest boat launch; ladies wait for my wife's dad to pick them up and bring them to where we launched from 8:30 - waiting at boat launch, we find out we gave the ladies the wrong name of the facility. As my buddy's cell was trashed in the near-sinking, a guy and his wife who were loading their boat offered their cell phone so I could call and get the right location to the ladies. 9p - lady who lives near the launch gets into her Mazda Protégé; I comment to the fellow Mazda-owner "Nice P5!". Yadda Yadda, she asks if we want her to take us to food. We decline 9:45 - she comes back, and insists; I hop in and she drives to a few places until we found a bar w/ an open kitchen While we wait for two fish-n-chips to go, me and Pat talk about her grandkids, my kids, etc. Lovely Lady. 10:30 - Back at the launch, my buddy and I are enjoying the fish n chips; The girls show up w/ the trailer. 10:50- Pat walks back out carrying two beers for me and my friend...she meets the ladies. Midnight - we get home. Go to sleep. Pics/vids to follow.
