Despite a minor reduction in length of the "keel" due to very low water temperatures, I must say it worked quite well, although did create an uncomfortable encounter with an overly curious female Killer Whale, but that's another story!
It’s bout time you "reel" your "Keel" back in and proceed to nearest head shrink... At your age... luring in a female killer whale with your private appendage... GEEEEZZZ!! In a court of lay you could be charged with in-depthcent exposure!! Penalty can be up to five years in frigid water to make sure your Keel can never again be extended for the purpose of taking advantage of any sea life! You my friend are the definition of a dangerously sex crazed boater. Decade ago, when they charged me for similar offence... I filled a jock-cup with ice cubes before trial. As my attorney had me reveal my greatly encumbered “Keel” to the jury... all 12 persons laughed the prosecution out of court; case was dismissed. Judge mentioned that in this case evidence must be large enough to see with naked eye in order for any chance of convection. After release from trial I immediately applied a hot pad and was soon able to resume lurid sea-taunt activities!! Jus sayen...

I think I found that anchor around 1996 while diving, but it was burried so deep we could not get it out.

Oh... that's OK! The $10,000 reward expired in 95 anyway!
