Default Close call

Got a call from a friend to get to my boat QUICK...

I usually put it in .....use it ,and then right back on trailer.
I put it in for the Shore Dreams on Sat and decided for
a change to leave it a friends house at his dock.

My boat sits low in the water and one of the neighbors called
the fire dept and reported that it was sinking.

Well 2 fire trucks, 2 rescue trucks, 2 cop cars 15 fireman
show up and lucky for me the neighbor next door shows up
and asks whats up?........they tell him to go away..
The fireman where trying to rip the hatch off to see if it
was taking on water..........the neighbor yells at him to
stop, that the boat sits low.

They stop their attack and say they can't see the bottom paint
so it must be sinking........the guy says ..its got no bottom
paint.........look at the scum line on the boat. He tells them
it's been like that since Sat.

Good thing this guy came home when he did...or these
knuckle heads would have done some real damage
