This photo appears in the current issue of the Delta Sun Times, in the Bonehead Boater column, with the caption: Even the Sheriff forgets to fill her up…” With most of our Bonehead Boater columns, we use humor. In fact, the Sheriff did not run out of gas. According to Will Duke, of the Sheriff’s Marine Patrol, the boat in tow had lost it’s outdrive, a mechanical failure from the manufacturer. In addition, marine patrol vessels always carry an extra five gallons of gas for those true Bonehead Boaters!
The Sheriff’s Marine Patrol does an outstanding job, and of course, aren’t Bonehead Boaters… but they meet quite a few! 🙂
Thanks to Will Duke, for setting the record straight!
