I took a spill this weekend too. I was leaning off the bow, looping a line around a piling. I lost my balance, and tried to swing around the piling onto the boat in the next slip. IT WAS UGLY! I bounced/slid right down into the water. I have abrasions on my ear, arm, and thigh, and I finally got all the splinters out. I won't pull that one again.

I feel your chin and pride pain!

Ditto for me. I was getting out of the and didn't have the drives straight. Nice gouge out of my chin (in the shape of a prop blade).

Not enough skin left to stitch

OUCH!! Glad you're OK. We have a very slippery swim platform also, I want to take it off this winter and have the color changed and add some grip. Just another little project to make the winter go by a little faster!!

the only thing that hurts worse than that is leaning up on the dash finishing a nice big gulp of icehouse just in time to watch one of your female gests do the exact same thing on your boat, damm that looked like it hurt, the look on her face was total shock, it felt like someone hit the boat with a hammer, the hair stands up on the back of your neck and you instantly wish it was you instead,

Nauti, Warpaint is like that. Thats the reason he has no friends. Then again he may be talking about his swim platform.
