Something funny about that crisp line at the waterline on the left side of the wreck.

An 18 foot croc swimming past my boat near Gilberts in Key Largo....saw it later wrapped halfway around a thirty foot CC with something in its mouth.

I asked the wife "you tell me, what does that look like to you...."

She said "well, it looks like a sleeved arm and a hand held crosswise in his mouth."

Yeah, that is what it looked like!!!!!

In 1997, I just got honorably discharged from the Marines. A group of 10 of us (all Jarheads) went to Parker, Az. for the Labor Day weekend. We all went in a 40' motorhome.

We were partying at "The Roadrunner", it's one of the bar/restaurants that is right on the water. You can pull up in your boat and dock. I didn't have a boat at this time, so we were at the bar all day and night

On Friday night of the holiday weekend, a fight broke out at the bar and one guy got punched, fell into the water and they never found his body. This bar is on the Colorado river,if you've never been there-- it moves pretty fast! Anyway, we were partying on that Sunday and the body floated up after being underwater for like 36 hours. I was pretty drunk, all I remember is that the body floated up right near where we were hanging out and we didn't even notice it. until a girl was screaming her head off. I was pretty hammered!!

When I was kid, I saw a young man that had been run over by his father's boat. After running him over, the boat broke down. We had to load him into our boat and take him back to meet the ambulance. Luckily, it only hit the flabby portion of his butt and missed all of the vital areas.

The guy had been riding on the bow of his fathers boat in a river known for crab pots and underwater obstructions. ...

Running back to Hammond, IN from downtown Chicago last spring when I saw something floating in the water. I swung around and came back, and from about 20 feet away I could see it was a leather jacket upside down with the sleeves outstetched. Took us till about 5 feet away to see that it was empty...but the way it was floating...damn it looked like somebody was in it...plus...hey...it WAS off Chicago!
