Food for fish on Fridays? Joe, Joe, Joe, why are you so negative? Sharks are misunderstood; they're gentle and playful. I think I'll jump in and swim with them.From the deepest reaches of my paleo brain something screams out to me and it doesn't say sharks are playful, more like hungry!
Shades of Capt. Joe Schmidt and Dan Brazeltont! I wonder why sailors don't like the surf? Could it be that dark feeling of dread that in the next 30 seconds you will be inverted in your smashed Laser with water shooting out of your nostrils?
Marlin sinks boat! Actually, the captain screwed up:
"Not all the details are in, but apparently the captain began backing down on the huge fish, a common practice in big-game fishing when a fish is taking line. He puts the boat in reverse to chase the fish.
One commenter on Marlin Magazine's Facebook post who apparently had some knowledge of the incident said that the captain fell as he was backing down on the fish at full throttle. The boat took on too much water and, finally, there was no correcting the situation.
Marlin Magazine reported that the boat went to the bottom of the sea and everybody on board was rescued by the photo boat. And, of course, the fish got away. "
Those guys are going to have a hell of a fishing tale to tell. For some reason, I don't think the captain will be getting that many charters in the future.
Oh shit, so this it, I'm going to die! This photo should give you, the non-surfer, a pretty good perspective on the power of those little things that roll across the ocean only to break against the shore, waves.
How much do you want to bet that the "deals" these folks are scrambling over today will end up in a closet or storage unit by the time "Black Friday" rolls around again next year! I've got to a get a deal, Joe, even if it means spending money that I don't have on stuff that I don't need or really want. A deal's a deal!
It looks like a box with a mast and sail. Mind you, I've been downing massive quantities of bourbon the last few days so I might not be seeing what I think I'm seeing. If I am seeing what I think I'm seeing then it begs the question; why would someone build a boat like that?
