Pedal, pedal, pedal your boat, furiously down the Mon.

I’m not saying the dude is lying, but man, that does NOT look very stable to me.

I mean, what happens when the Gateway Clipper, a barge, or a speed boat goes by? You can’t tell me that sucker is going to take the wake too smoothly and NOT pitch you right off the seat.

If that’s me, and I see the Clipper coming up on my ass, that’s about when I start pedaling as furiously as possible. The last thing I want is to be swimming in the gorgeously murky rivers of the Mon while all the old people enjoying the Polish Polka Cruise watch me flail about.

I might try this.

    He’s in the “No-Wake” zone. He should be safe.

    They used to use me as the victim for Pittsburgh River Rescue. It’s hard to imagine I used to get paid to get thrown out of a boat into the Allegheny on rainy days in January. It was some of the most fun I’ve ever had.

    Ice rescue’s pretty good, too, if you get a chance to be the victim.

    Can you imagine the obit on this guy if he accidentally drowns?

    Oh, dear. I may be going to hell for that remark.

    Or at least to the haunted tree north of Pittsburgh.

    Laugh at him all you want. That looks like the coolest substitute EVER for for the damn stairclimber. His ass could probably stop a barge in its tracks by now.
