Default Rolled on navarre beach

ugh. When will i learn?

Launched the PA and the Outback from Navarre beach last night about 5:30. GREAT fishing. Spanish macks hitting everything on every cast. Tore hell out of all of my sabikis. It was dodgy launching but we finally got out there. Having too much fun and not paying attention to the time. It was dark by the time we got back. We could "hear" that the surf had picked up, but it was almost too dark to really judge it. My son got the Outback in without much problem. That torpedo is always fun in the incoming surf. I made a couple of expeditionary runs to the beach and turned tail and ran back out on both attempts. Finally thought i saw an area that i could "thread the needle" and beach it. Made a run for it and hurd that crescendo of thunder rumbling behind me and getting closer. Now, my first mistake was NOT securing my gear and NOT getting the dozen nice macks into the forward hold before making this run (DOH!!!). At any rate, that rumbling finally reached my ass end and promptly turned me sideways and just as quickly flipped me, about 50 yards from the beach. Fortunately i was able to flip it back over before the next wave hit, but i was still neck deep in water. Lost half my tackle boxes, my good filet knife and my fish finder got soaked. hoping to dry that out tonight with the heat gun and pray it comes back to life.

Installing straps this weekend to secure ALL the damn tackle boxes and going to install a nasa style checklist permanently attached to the boat until i learn to FOLLOW PROCEDURES when beaching in rough surf.

Ack. And to boot, my whole friggin body aches from taking that roll.

Lost all the fish also. Hope to get back out on Saturday and redeem myself.

Crap, When its rough I jump out and swim it through the surf. I've seen some of the yak legends on this forum get rolled so u got to be prepared, even when its calm. It's not if you will get rolled, its when.
