We’ve all done silly things in boats. I blush when I think of some of mine, and, naturally, hope that my wife, family and friends won’t tell the world about too many of them. But still I had to smile when I saw this story on the BBC site, thanks to Mouseboats Yahoogroup member Shawn Payment. Thanks Shawn!

I wonder whether he had any insurance? Somehow it seems unlikely.
