Stay ashore too long?

This is what happens to your dinghy if you stay ashore too long.

Many years ago, maybe my 3rd year of boating, I left my dinghy ashore at a small town on the Hudson River. Luckily for me I tied it well, because after our 1 1/2 hour jaunt in town, I came back to a half full dinghy as the tide was coming in.
It was a good lesson to learn for sure.

Yesterday the marina provided a free continental breakfast. You'll need to stand on your head to enjoy the photo. Sorry I couldn't fix it. Howard

Re some of these photos - someone needs to tell them that they should leave their motors down when tying up the dinks.
