This Boatload of Boating Fails Will Instantly Make You Feel Good

If you can’t go boating yourself, you might well enjoy some boating fails of others instead. 

We’ve all pretty much seen it one time or another while out trying to enjoy some peace and quiet on the water. A relaxing evening on the lake can be ruined awful quickly by some yahoo that runs out of gas, forgets to put the plug in their boat, runs over a reef, or just flat falls out of their boat and can’t swim.

Unfortunately, thousands of people out there are just boating fails waiting to happen.

With that in mind, here are a bunch of pictures of boating fails just to prove that they are more common than you might think.
