Bonehead Moves on the Water - Capsize Edition
We all have had some close calls in our life but one stands out for me. We were houseboating on Lake Shasta back in the late 80's and out for a water ski. My glasses had fallen overboard so I donned my gogles and headed to the bottom. We had the orange flag up to let everyone know that a person was in the water. A jet skier decided to buzz our boat and came way too close. Just as I surfaced, he blew by and missed my head by a few inches. He was doing a good 30 mph. I hope he saw me and realized he almost took my head off. Close call and I am glad I am still here to tell you about it.
