Ever been told to wear shoes at the boat ramp? Ever not listen to what you are told? Ever have a sail mate think they know better?
So it was on Friday, May 14 when one of my crew and aspiring small boat racers decided to take her shoes off before getting out of her boat at the ramp. Seems she forgot she was told to wear shoes. Seems she also was clueless about the danger that lurks in the nasty, broken glass, oyster shelled, moss covered slippery ramp waters where we launch our small boats. As they say a picture is worth a thousands words. More importantly, this picture is here to remind everyone that despite the romance of airing one's toes while traveling the seven seas, when getting out of the boat, you just might want to put your shoes on.
