Wink Fellow's 15 year kept bugging Dad to let her row the drift boat for the first time.

Except for the last part, she did a lot better than me the first time I was on the oars. I did donuts right through a pod of fisherman standing out in the river.

Thank goodness I don't do that anymore.

Or my first time on the oars on the Green when we got high centered on the diversion dam, Davo had to jump out to get us off the rock.

Sounds like something I would do even if I was an experienced oarsman. "Woah! Comin' through! Watch it! " As I do circles down the river past the wading fishermen. I figure they will either get mad, or have a good laugh if they have a sense of humor.

That's not as bad as trying to steer away from some fishermen, but instead hitting the rockwall and sandbar on the shore. Thus having to get out of the canoe and push it back into the water.

LOL! Larry, I forgot about that. Scared the bajeezers out of me when it happened though.

Luckily the group was very good natured about it, still plenty embarrassing though.

I think this dad has the right idea: You gotta get 'em trained EARLY!
You want them to be able to row you safely when you're too old & stove up to row yourself or swim to shore.

Introducing people to rowing a drift boat can be one of the funniest things you can experience on the river. Make sure your in a safe spot , and that everyone has a sense of humor. A diamond plated floor willie with dyna lites shes set up for success.

Just the fact that she wanted to row is a beautiful thing.
I would hope this little disturbance wouldn't deter her from trying again.

I have provided a number of hilarious moments for my friends, fellow anglers and myself. Fortunately they were just that, because they can be frighting at the time.

For that matter I usually get a good laugh every time I go out, if not from my own boat someone else.

Pardon my tangent, but IMO its not just a beginner thing. Sure the rowing part comes with time but really the more you do it the more likely something will happen. Rivers are a continuously changing force of nature, its not a matter if it will happen, its more when it happens will you be prepared?

I have seen grown adults flop straight out of the boat. though I can't take any claim to that, I have pulled off similar acrobatics as the cheerleader. The only difference was I was already in a daunting moment going through a super narrow braided channel with over hanging vegetation and when I went to sit back down I flopped on the floor with the camping gear in the back. moments later I was popping out of a random overgrown channel with anglers awaiting only then having to pull the boat over a gravel bar to get back to the main channel
While the gravel thing is noting I am not use to, it just felt more humiliating this time

That is just one story related and Ill spare you the rest of my embarrassments. As many of you have, I have seen some super funny moments, border line frighting moments and then some straight up life and death moments. That was pretty darn funny, I have been waiting to catch one of my fishing partners on camera doing something that hilarious.

Anyways I guess all I am saying is she already one upped many fishermen just by wearing a PFD

Hope everyone is getting out!
Peace,
Watson

ha ha ....what kind of a Sailor lays down on the job?

Belay that Matey.

Anyway, I've never, ever done anything that stupid, '...cept of course that time I started the electric motor to go back to the dock at the end of the day. Must have taken me 20 minutes to figure out the Anchor was down.
That was all my son's fault of course.
