On the Rocks
It was heartening to be able to come home, after a really nice weekend on the water, and watch my recorded commercial-free programs. It was also heartening to know that we had done a good deed yesterday, in assisting a boat in need.
We were travelling home, in a narrow channel where, because of the depth, it is important to stay inside of the buoys. We noticed a power boat going on the wrong side of the marker. My Sweetie tried to warn them on the VHF, but it was too late. They were travelling fast and hit hard, taking out the props and making it impossible to continue. We communicated with them, threw them a line and towed them to a rendez-vous with a commercial tow boat to take them to their destination.
