If you are ever in a sinking boat, and you don your PFD (Personal Flotation Device), be sure not to jump overboard carrying the boat's anchor...or a cannonball...or an anvil.
I learned this valuable lesson by reading the warnings printed on Lachlan's life jacket. "DO NOT CARRY HEAVY OBJECTS -- HEAVY OBJECTS IMPAIR FLOTATION."
Who would have thought?
Well, now you've been warned. Happy Boating!
