Nautical Humor

1) A sailor, after running aground on a sand bar, paid a passing fisherman fifty dollars to pull him off with his boat. After he was off the bar, he said to the fisherman, "At those prices, I should think you could make a real living pulling people off night and day."

"Can't," replied the fisherman. "At night I haul sand for the bar."

2) Two fishermen were on opposite sides of a lake. One yelled across to the other saying; "Any luck?" The second yelled back; "Real good here!"

Having not caught a thing the first wanted to get on the same side but couldn't find a way to do it. He shouted to the other; "How do I get on the other side?" The second answered; "You are on the other side."


Stupid Human Boating Tricks | from the iboats.com Forums

Bare in mind I was 16 at the time.

I have a boat where you can ride with 3 or 4 people in the bow. One warm summer day I'm cruising along at about 45 mph with 4 friends in the front. I'm thinking life is good. Hanging with friends enjoying the summer, no troubles.

The lake we were on is in northern NH - southern Maine. The lake sits half on each side. It has one family of loons, which are endangered, that nest there every year. As we’re cruising along enjoying ourselves, one of my friends yells "LOON!". As you may well know, loons can stay under water for quite a while, and this one decides to pop up right in my path.

My first reaction is to throw the engine in neutral, so I pull the throttle back. The boat starts to slow fast . . . too fast. I look forward and see the nose of my boat about a foot under water, with my friends scrambling (as the crowd does at a big concert when the headlining band comes on) towards me.

There’s no place to go but back – and all I can see is people and water rushing toward me.

Well, to make a long story a bit shorter, all three windshield panes broke, including the frame. The boat was so full of water it was sitting only about an inch above the water. I spent the rest of the summer working to pay for the damages.

One more SHBT for the books!
