note Haha, that's a good one. Reminds me of another story.
My father's friend took one of his more burly friends down a river in California in a 13 foot fiberglass boat he had hand built back in the early 80's. The seams around the cockpit were built to break in case of a pin. Well, his rather strong and large friend flipped upside down a rapid or two into the trip, completely freaked out and couldn't remember how to get his skirt off. So instead, he reached down, grabbed the rim of cockpit and just tore it clean off the boat.
