Reminds me of a story from years ago, I think also in Florida. Couple was off shore and decided a little skinny dipping was in order. Their little dog, alone on the boat, got all worked up as little dogs do when left alone. Running excitedly around the cockpit of the small open boat, he managed to hit the shifter and put the boat in gear.

Luckily the couple was eventually rescued by helicopter and the boat and dog were recovered OK too.

This stuff really does happen. Glad this ended well.

Dang it all. Now I gotta add another "rule" to the growing list of boat rules.

Notes to self: Turn off engines. Drop anchor. Tie up dog. Strip. Don lifejackets. But not the one with the EPIRB......

Geesh. How'd this get so complicated?

Anything is possible...once had a search in the Chesapeake for a guy to took a double dose of PCP, took off his clothes and jumped off the back of the boat...the guy driving the boat from the flybridge said he musta jumped off somewhere between the Sassafrass and Tolchester....about 15 miles..
