30 years of working on the docks, on and around boats all my life, and today I fell in :hairraiser
Nobody saw it except my crew and I told them I was cooling off. Gonna tell ya it was a really odd feeling.

    I've come close before. Leaned too far over when looking for a mullet to gig. As I was falling I was able to catch the dock with my arms so only my legs got wet

    I did once off my Maverick in two feet of water and landed on my feet. Embarrassing, but no real harm.

    1st time is always the hardest, next time it will be easier.

    I've never fallen out of my boat, it's an Old Town canoe with a 8 hp. However, one day I was pulling it across some shallows, tripped, and fell into the boat. :willynilly

    I don't even work around docks and I've fallen off of 3.
    I guess that's why I don't.
    I have never seen live bones, but I know that they are often used by rich people to decorate the interior.

    I fell over board at a busy beach, on a holiday weekend. Wife and the kids already in the boat getting settled in, so i run up to the front to pull the anchor. On the way back down the casting deck my foot got stuck on one of my clamp-on rod holders, and head first i went into 3' of water. Wife and kids were laughing at me, yelling man over board. Spectators on the beach were clapping. My Wife said she was thinking about throwing every life jacket i had on the boat at me when i stood up, but she thought i was embarrassed enough. lol.
    And no, i wasn't drunk.

    I have fallen out many times.

    Last keys trip in June we were trolling a weedline in about 700 FOW.
    The "shotgun" line in top of the tee top had grass. The seas were 4-5 that day. I was standing on the gunnel holding the T-Top with one hand and trying to throw the grass with the other hand.... I fell right off the side and in some quick thinking threw the rod at my buddy on the boat and grabbed on to my sunglasses...Everyone had a good laugh and circled back to scoop me up..

    Got out of my boat on the beach and tripped on an anchor line in the water and went head over heals. Didn't spill my beer, though.:)

    Glad you can tell us the event :wink.
    I never fall down in the sea but at least once a year my stream/brook bath is almost a tradition :grin.

    As a safety measure to avoid trips and falls, it is recommended that members tuck in their tampon strings prior to posting.

    I've never fallen out of a boat, out of a truck bed, yes, off a raised sidewalk, yes.

    Did watch a guy we were hunting with on the Chesapeake walk right off the dock into 38 degree water. :rotflmao
    Good thing his gun was stowed on the boat.

    Was shrimping few yrs ago and we were on them good so I was hustling and cast out and stepped toward the bow so my buddy could cast. Stepped to close to the edge (polar bay boat with front deck) and lost balance and busted my ****. Scraped me from my waist to my armpit down side of boat. There were few other boats around but sonehow no one saw but my buddy who was doubled over laughing. It was about 20 ft so I threw the handline in boat and the adrenaline kicking somehow sprung myself back into the boat and had about 40 nice shrimp. It was hot as blazes so felt refreshed but was black and blue for a week. Moral of story don't let net get away with shrimp in it.

    Spending summers as a kid with my dad on his catamaran live aboard I've fallen off the dock at least 3 times I can remember. Never out of the boat though... lol
