close call

Had a great day off Port Stephens yesterday on board " The Pump". Went 6-6-4 for the day and also had one come into the boat. Pretty much as close as it gets.

Always wait for the boat to actually stop moving before you get off, or terrible things can happen.

Exhibit A: This guy.

As the ferry nears land, he scurries off the ramp and ends up taking a tumble into the sand.

Fortunately, someone quickly comes to his rescue and pulls him out just before the ramp slams down on his back.

A Cheshire man was able to survive a close-range shotgun glass because of his pocketed iPhone, which absorbed most of the damage:
