We used to own a boat and we would tool around the Delta on it. I do not swim well so even though I enjoyed myself I was always a tad bit nervous. One day we were docking in prep to go home (I am not good at docking either)which always made me more nervous. I trust my husband totally so when he told me to go to the front of the boat and grab the rope I did, when he said jump I did......AHHHHHHHH he did not mean for me to launch myself off of the boat. I disappeared under the boat on the boat launch (did I mention I do not swim well). Let me tell you I had a death grip on that rope with my one good arm as I was bashed against the boat bottom several times. For those of you who do not know (I certainly did not) a boat launch is quite deep and there is a lot of turbulence down there, you cannot simply stand up! My husband managed to rescue me thankfully. When I was safely back on the boat I noticed all the concerned folks who had gathered to see if I was okay (and to see the show I was putting on I am sure.) Many came up and asked if I needed assistance including a nurse, I did not there was nothing they could do to patch up my pride. Another successful day on the Delta.
