Near the end of the cruise I planned to stop in an area sheltered from the current so they could swim. As I was maneuvering the boat so set the anchor and was starting to back up I heard a lot of yelling from the stern. I went to neutral to find out what was going on and found that one drunk lady had jumped in the water as I was backing up.
The other 17 guests were appalled at what she had done and let her know. I was so mad I didn't even want to talk to her because I knew the words that came out would not be pretty or dignified.
I eventually did talk with her about how stupid her act of jumping in was and she apologized.
That one act has caused us to rethink donating charity cruises so we have not completely stopped. Sad, but it had to be done.
good solution don't dead by cancer, dead by trawler prop from dinner charity :bang head:
