Ok, I'll play.
Many years ago a couple friends and I decided to buy a drift boat, we figured the initial cost of the boat and any subsequent repair cost associated with the learning curve of rowing would be better split between three instead of one.
Anyway, on the maiden voyage we decided to fish The Green River below Flaming Gorge on a crowded early Summer day. My turn to row came up, I took my position on the oars and quickly found out it wasn't as easy as others make it appear and proceeded to let the boat spin out of control with folks lined up on both sides of the river and a few others fishing right where the boat was headed. I apologized up and down while explaining that I was a "rookie on the oars", fortunately everyone (who's hole I blew through) was understanding and laughed along with the others in the boat. I wasn't laughing.
It was a tough go for a while learning to control a drift boat and honestly I almost quit and sold my share of the boat to the other guys, looking back I'm so glad and thankful I didn't.
