Boots does float

We were too busy sailing to fully document the event, that’s how we roll.

After an extended period of trying to sail off the ledge that runs off the south end of the island, Boots was forced to wade out and retrieve his boat.

The trip from the shore to the island involved wading through chest high pond water, which you would avoid even touching if you could. The island is home to the flock of geese that people seem to like. Personally I think of them as little more than nasty crap producers. With that in mind you can imagine the water quality around the island.

As far as I am aware Boots is still alive, but we all noticed he did not return to sailing, and avoided the traditional mocking that accompanies such an episode.
