How about Lake Bozworth, 3 dudes in a rubber raft, 2 of which pulled an all nighter drinking the champagne of beers, an upsidedown snowboard as a middle bench seat, and a seam that blows out? Yeah, talk about a $hit-show. So after a futile effort from Mr. Magler of putting a chunk of powerbait on the blown seam to stop the leak, we had to kick our way over to a floating dock about 20 feet away in full raingear. Some fishermen in a boat near the shore watched the whole thing and picked us up, I wish they had a videocamera.
We continued to fish from the floating dock until we were picked up, and managed to make it to the dock without losing any gear - including our snowboard seat. It was a nice one to stick in the old, "experience jar."
