Insanity: 70-Year-Old Sailor Takes Wrong Turn, Ends Up Buried In Sand

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in British Columbia say a 70-year-old sailor was left high and dry for two days when a wrong turn sent his boat to be buried in sand and logs.

The rescue center said the boat was buried in sand and logs as a result of wind and the tides. The man was unable to radio for help because he could not get a signal, the rescuers said."



The boat should be left buried in sand and logs, the only boat the 70-year-old coot should be playing with is one small enough to fit inside his bathtub.

If a sailor takes a wrong turn and ends up buried in sand, that`s a pretty good indication that his sailing days are over.

The coast guard should bill the old goat for the rescue operation, and they should administer and old school punishment like boxing his ears.
