No kidding, I'm gonna tell you it happened.
I can hear all of you saying...he's really not going to tell us all how damm dumb he is, is he? Well, considering I never thought you could tip a PA so easily, I figured I might spare some of you who might be in a new PA the embarrassment of having it happen to you. I was lucky, that it was summer and water temp was 80+.
Ok, so here's the deal. I'm fishing in a reservoir around boat docks fishing for pan fish. I got in too close to a boat motor, and had a rod in my right hand (which also went in the drink) and considering the boat motor I was attempting to stay away from was on my right, I "reached across my body with my left hand to push against the motor, and just got my body off center enough that I just pitched "ass over teakettle" into the water. It happened so fast, I can hardly believe it happened. Thankfully, when I first got the yak, I had gone out and tried the method suggested to get back in the PA and found I didn't have the upper body strength, so looking for a better/easier way to reboard, I went to the stern, and was able to ease myself back on the boat.
I know you all are cracking up at how dumb can anyone be, just to be telling you all about it. Believe it or not, the boat did not turtle...it just kinda popped right back in the upright position after my butt was out of it. Didn't even take on any water that I could tell.....other than the water my wet and soggy clothes added.
Ok so that my sorry tale, and I will slink back into the forum now and wait for all your "kind" retorts...like I really expect any kind retorts
Ok as kind of an aside...anyone want to comment on wearing waders in the PA after my sad tale? I am concerned it might not have been quite as funny a story had the water been cold, and in chest waders.
