On The Ropes in Island Cove



Sometimes unexpected things happen, and they are always a learning experience. Last night we were looking for a place to put the anchor down. Usually Jerry scopes the locations out first, and as he was looking ahead, I spotted something in the water that did not look right. In an instant, we had run over a rope that had been strung across the little cove we were eyeballing. We threw the throttle into reverse, but too late, we were already over top the line. So, we got into Tail, and tried to pull the rope back under the keel without luck. After struggling with it for 2 minutes, we decided the best thing to do was just cut the rope. Fortunately, that was all it took (I was not looking forward to going in the water to cut it off the prop!) and we backed away and put the anchor down. Afterwards, we pulled the two cut ends away from the inside of the cove and onto the shore so it wouldn't happen to another unsuspecting boater. Afterwards, Jerry got busy in the kitchen making Rice Krispie Squares..... yummmmmm.

Why do you think that rope was there? And who might have strung it across the cove?

Weeellll, I am not sure why it was there or who would have put it there. It looked looked as if it had been there for a long time because it was covered with mussels and sea worms, and we didn't see that it was serving any useful purpose. Like Jerry said, they can put up a new one if they want.
