I was wondering what possible courses of action various brothers would take if they were fishing and suddenly noticed their boat filling with water. I have had the pleasant feeling a couple times all ready. The first time is the learning experience nearly all boaters go through... put in the dang plug. By the time I figurred out what was wrong, I had about 4" of water in the boat. I reeled in the poles, started the engine and took off. Had my fishing buddy standing by with plug in his hand. When your running the boat, the water creates a drag on the back of the boat and presto, the water gets sucked out. When it's down to where you will no longer have a heart attack, put in the plug and go back to fishing. Second time was on the Chesapeake Bay when a wave generated by a tug boat crashed over the stern...instant water. Same senario, same outcome. Just don't panic - that's what will kill you. Any other brothers had similar experiences?
