Damsel...Part 3 (Leverage)

Leverage. Yesterday, leverage was king...and no, I am not talking about LBOs.

Leverage was king, because that is what Lang Shaffer, his two children, Walter and Cassidy and my brother, Jimmy, used to right our boat. I can't believe I don't have a picture to show you how it worked, but I was actually helping man one of the lines and my hands were full.

In a nutshell, Lang and crew guided my upside down boat around the floating dock to position it sideways against the dock...and more importantly, against the current. Then, lines were tied to the cleats of the boat on the side away from the dock and using manpower, we pulled on those ropes while the strong current pushed the bottom of the boat away from the dock and presto... the boat was right side up, though full of water.

We bailed....well Jimmy, Lang and Walter bailed and Paul Myers showed up to tow the boat to the marina. Then, with the boat on the trailer, I drove the sucker (I mean our boat)to the boatyard (with my mom riding shotgun, oh yes, we are a family that stays together)where the motor was washed and rinsed so it wouldn't seize up. There it sits until Monday, when I receive the dreaded phone call with the diagnosis and the estimate. Stay tuned.
