True story - mate of mine who works in a boatyard was called out to refloat a pretty plastic powerboat that the new owner had enthusiastically tied off against a ladder running up the harbour wall. Tide came in - boat flooded and sank.

Owner complained that while he knew the tide came in and out he never suspected that it also went up and down...

Allmost as good here
Pretty extreme stuff. If its the one I am thinking of, the guy who owns it is a diver and managed to waterproof a V8, then drove through and out the other side without it missing a beat.

that's what we all hope, never happens to us but we still need to keep thinking of tides


I have no idea who or where this is but it shows what happens when we forget about tides
