Top Ten - Swamped Boat

As a follow up to yesterday's post, here are my top ten things to say when you're on the dock dealing with a swamped gondola and someone walks by laughing.

1. I'm soaking the wood.

2. This is how I wash the gondola.

3. What, you've never seen a "lowrider gondola"?

4. No, we did this on purpose - we wanted to see how easy it was to sink one of these things. The insurance company needed to know.

5. It's normal for this gondola to ride so low - it helps us get under low bridges. (especially effective in Alamitos Bay)

6. It may look like a gondola, but it's really a semi-submersible.

7. Laugh all you want, but my "yacht" has a jacuzzi.

8. I'm doing an experiment in multi-level docking. Once this boat is deep enough, I'll be able to float another one in on top. If my plan works, I'll be able to cut my docking budget in half!

9. I knew I shouldn't have let that passenger on board wearing spiked golf shoes.

10. I keep fish in there!
