    Do-It-Yourself Bass Boat

    September 2004, Arkansas

    My son is a rescue diver with our local sheriff's department. About two months ago, they were called out for an emergency rescue of several people who had fallen in the water, after their boat had tipped over.

    When the rescue team arrived at the scene, other boaters had pulled two men out of the water and onto their boat. Two other cloth covered items were seen floating in the river.

    When the rescue team entered the water, they found that these were not bodies.

    The story was that the two men that were pulled out of the water had decided to do a little fishing. Bass fishermen spend tens of thousands of dollars outfitting their specialized boats with fancy electronic fish finders and other gear, and sometimes make the boats into floating palaces, with seats that recline while they're waiting for the big one to strike. But not everyone can afford the best.

    These two fishermen had to make do with a 14-foot, flat-bottom jon boat, a kind of skiff. Wanting to be comfortable, and not having the money for a real bass boat, these two dim bulbs decided to put a couple of La-Z-boy recliners on their boat. They must have barely had enough room left of their supply of beer. Needless to say, they both decided to recline at the same time, and you can figure out the rest of the story.

    My son said that they and the rest of the rescue team were laughing so hard that they could hardly do their job.
