As a tribute to all of the foolish times I’ve had on the water (and as a warning to the rest of you), I have posted some of my best insights into what to avoid in all your Woman, Water, Wild escapades…
Don’t hold the sharks without gloves for protection… Their sandpaper skin will give you rub burn!
Never stand this close to a ledge on a day when the water is rough… the oysters will cut you, the waves will rough you up and, if all else fails, the rocks won’t be fun.
Always bring a rag with you in case the hook leaves a fish bloody…
Be sure you’ve got stable footing on the deck before snapping a picture… You might miss an opportunity to capture a quick moment (like a fish before it jumps off the hook!).
Dress appropriately for the type of weather you’re most likely to experience… Rain, cold or sunshine.
Wear a helmet when wake-boarding or water skiing. Water may seem like a gentle, soft place to land but surface tension begs to differ.
Be sure to pull and then reel, pull and then reel… This technique takes the tension off your line which decreases its chances of snapping!
Keep one person on the boat at all times. Not only does this insure that it stays in the same place (even if there’s an anchor dropped). Not to mention, someone can take pictures of all the action!
Always be safe and aware or you might find yourself stuck in the mud!
