1988, Merrimac River Amesbury MA. 02:00 with a friend and 2 VERY drunk ladies from local bar. Walking down dock to boat for late night ride (always told the ladies we'd go for a spin - boat would never leave the dock ) and the nit-wit I'm with decides to do a cart wheel - river was racing, pitch black night and she goes in on the upstream side and out of sight in a second. I peered over the other side and all I saw was a hand racing by, grabbed it and pulled her out.

I spent a fist full of cash to get her drunk and almost didn't get laid that night. Scared the hell out of me. I still get chills thinking about it.

6 year old girl bleed out in my arms while we were racing to get her to land

Marine patrol had to restrain me on shore, I was going to kill her dad.

Sitting on the bow of Daddy's boat, hit a wave, he ran her over..

Needless to say, NO ONE rides on the bow of my boats, or with an appendage hanging off the side...

Not spooky but strange

Idling in on one to the ramp I see a object swimming back and forth in front of me. I thought it was a duck at first but as I got closer I saw it was a dog! I shut down and got him to come over to my swim platform and pulled him on-board. I was shocked as this was an older dog and he was in the middle of no where. So I am trying to calm him down doing the "It's o.k. boy" type talk and to my surprise this guy was still ready to go he started to jump of my engine hatch to head for my cabin and acted like he wanted to play! I made a dive for the door and beat him to it (no wet dog in my cabin)

So got to the ramp and turned him over to the DNR they didn't want him but I gave the guy no choice he had to do the right thing! Called the Kennels the next day to see if the owner had been contacted and they responded with ya thats whats his names dog he's here all the time picking him up I was pissed off if I would of had a clue this dog was not taken care of I would of tried to find him a better home! I figured it was some old folks dog that fell in off the boat or at least a distraught pet owner that would of been grateful to have their pet back
