Default Very embarrasing - be careful

Just a word of caution - every boat does not have the same grip on their swim platform!!!Sunday I was not being careful and climbed onto the back of our friends boat. Their swim platform does not have as much grip as ours and a wave hit the back at the same time, add a couple of beers; you can figure out what happened. Fell, hit my chin on the platform and now it's bruised and hurts like a SOB!!!!

You're lucky that's all that happened. Being that close to your face , a whole lot more damage could have been done. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery

It's not too bad at all - I think the only thing that got seriously hurt was my pride!! Boy I felt like a jackass!!!! But if I had known how un-grippy it was I would've held on to the rail or something!!!

At least only your pride was hurt I have two sets of props one set is so thin that they can cut very easy just be glad no stiches were needed. And you can blame that bruse on some one else

At LOTO my wife was swimming behind the boat and kicked one of the props. BIG BRUISE. Thank GOD the unlabbed 28's were on and not the labbed 26's.
