We live in a "Lakes Region" so we have always been around water. Growing up my dad always had a boat. It was usually a used boat that my parents found pretty cheap. The boats would always break down the third or fourth time we used it. We saved up as a family for over a year (cans/bottle redemption, spare change, dad quit smoking!) to get a brand new boat.

The first time we took the boat onto the lake it wouldn't start. Dad got more and more frustrated as we drifted further and further from the boat launch. Finally in desperation he asked us, "how do you like my $10K fu*king canoe! Grab a paddle" We had to paddle the boat back to the launch.

Dad forgot to add the correct mixture of oil/gas to the motor for first time use. After we got that settled we have a wonderful day on the lake! We were able to make it to the small island on the lake that has black sand.
