10/05/09 68 W, 1 I - + 18 - 8 Fire on the Water

Cameras are everywhere these days, as this viewer photo from WRAL reminds us. That's a burning boat off the Crystal Coast, about 35 miles north of the Beaufort inlet. The 35-foot craft reported a distress call about 3:00 p.m. yesterday. The Coast Guard rescued two people, and the boat sank after burning for about 45 minutes. Read the article and see more photos.

This is a bad day fishing…

Is this where the adage “A bad day fishing beats a good day at the office” is false?

Bingo. “A bad day fishing beats a good day at the office, unless your boat a) catches on fire, b) sinks, c) anything else occurs that eliminates you putting your boat back on the trailer/lift”
