How many times you fallen out of your RIB/SIB?
Had a fun day today. Got some good fish.
But was going hard out so got off the fiberglass bench and decided to sit on the pontoon to save my butt haha.
Hit a rogue wave followed by a another as I was mid turn, came out of nowhere. Next think, plonk Im in the ocean haha.
Moral of the story, ALWAYS where your safety vest and ALWAYS have your kill cord attached to your wrist and engine, even in a centre console.
To be honest I just wanted to share the experience as Ive been boating many years and I dont normally sit on pontoons but was just a freak accident. Even though I know I shouldnt say this, the dip was refreshing :-). The co pilot had it all under control. And within 30 seconds I was back under way.
Be safe in small RIBs especially.
