    well here goes,
    1. First time out on my 22' Scarab i walked out to the front of the bow with the anchor,slipped a landed on my ass( on the boat) LAST time I waxed the deck.
    2.A few monthes later went out with my girlfriends brother and had him help me reset the anchor right before a little ride.Needless to say he misunderstood the whole concept of what an anchor does and FORGOT to unclip it before the ride.Well thats okay the prop undid it for us.We dragged a frayed 21' rope for a half an hour and returned to no anchor.hmmm I was wondering why it cavitated for a second on take off.Oh by the way..if you don't believe this story....yup the girlfriend got it on video tape.c-y.....Mike

    Many many years ago a buddy and I decided to spend the night camped out on the beach in Silver Bay (Toms River, NJ).
    We planned to go skiing the next morning at first light.
    That evening a 30 ft sport fish pulled in and anchored about 150-200 yards out. We started a long distance conversation with the people on board (yelling back and forth).
    They invited us out to party with them. Sure no problem.
    We jumped in my boat and motored out, tied along side and began to have fun. The booze was flowing like water, smoke was passed around and in a short time we were all screwed up.
    It was like that all evening. Talk about getting f@*ked up!
    Somewhere around 2 AM we decided to head back to the beach. Started up and headed off in the last known direction that the beach was in. It was real dark, no moon, no lights on the beach.
    My friend asked if I was sure I could find our way back. Sure, when we tied up we were pointing right at the beach. All we have to do is head straight till we run aground. I said with a slurr.
    What I didn't know was that the had wind shifted and swung us around 180 degrees and I was headed out to the middle of the bay.
    After idling along for about 30 min I realized something was wrong, it shouldn't have taken this long to hit the beach.
    So I tried another direction. No beach that way.
    Change direction again. Still no beach.
    Now I've lost sight of the party boat. They had no lights on, not even an anchor light.
    Somehow I managed to make enough turns that I stumbled across the partiers and asked which way the beach was. Laughing, they all pointed towards it and off we went.
    Finally found it, made our way to the campsite and passed out.
    We never did go skiing the next day.
