Default Sometimes shore leave is not an option

The MP carries a small "tender" outboard powered to help getting crews to shore for setting lines, etc. One day on the trip they offer rides while going down the river. Each "volunteer" passenger must wear a life jacket, and you get to board the small boat while it is tied onto the MP, all while skimming along at 15 mph. Now, 15 mph may seem slow, but try boarding one of these small boats after a few beers...

1. A volunteer in line (Pat Duffy)
2. The boat about to depart
3. Catching up to the MP, about to pass.
