When we were at the Lake house this summer. We found a really good umbrella just lying in the road. So we saved it. We thought of the bright Idea for Chris to fly off the back of the boat with the umbrella and gently float to the water.
Big Ed can get into the water if the need is great enough. A mini Tsunami swamped the back of the boat while Ed was attempting to re-orient the boat to better handle the waves. Ed went down with his boat. A sight to behold.
