No I am not that cruel, sorry no pics.
Yes after less than 2 months boating SWMBO went into the drink yesterday when coming back into berth at marina and it was all my fault.
I was reversing into berth, SWMBO had leapt onto and reached Pontoon and all was going dandy. She walks boat back and was about to tie up.
Whilst all this was going on I noticed the nose drifting out starboard so came up with the great idea of turn to port and a quick nudge forward to bring nose back in which I duly did.
Nose starts to come back when I hear STEEEEEEEEVE, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh NO, Splash.
Thankfully the audiance was quite small, SWMBO remained calm and me and a boy from a neighbouring boat hauled her out.
SWMBO was impressed by the fact that I apparantly abandoned/ sacrificed my pride and joy to come to her aid. Fortunately she hadnt noticed that I had tied upto to a cleat whilst she was swimming to the side.
Any formites down at penarth please do not mention that I have posted this. I think I have got off very lightly and realise this is pushing my luck but felt that after all help I have received off this forum I should be giving something back.
Anyway we went back out again today with our weimaraner for the first time and everything went great.
And they say footballs a funny old game.
Anyway my question is: Is this perfectly normal for first time boaters? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
