Narrative: Join Karen and Dick for an afternoon of balancing on the water! We'll walk deck lines, climb all over our boats, learn what's stable and what's not, save ourselves and each other, and finish things off with a twisted little game we've devised. Nothing too complex, nothing too hard, but this will definitely be a wet afternoon with chances to practice some important skills. Please remember to dress for certain immersion and bring a helmet.
