I encountered this group on Lindbergh Lake on July 3rd: two men, one woman, one kid, and two puppy dogs in a grossly overloaded canoe and two vinyl pool toys.  How many safety issues can you spot in these pictures?  For starters, I should not have been maneuvering that close to them, because the wake from my kayak could have swamped the canoe.

All I care about is the kid had a life-jacket.

Guess it wouldn't do him much good if he floated to safety and his parents drowned, though....

Yup. Amos and I encountered a woman paddling a SIK (no PFD) while towing two young girls on SOTs (both wearing a PFD). The woman asked me if I could take one of the girls in, but the wind and wind waves were so gnarly that such a maneuver would have made a scary situation a dangerous situation.  Amos and I opted to escort the woman to the ramp. I told the lady that she should be wearing a PFD and that her girls would never forgive themselves if they watched their mom drown.

"Ample floaties"...haha!
Nice one Jim.
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck I'd swim to the bottom and never come up.

In Montana, the big game archery season doesn't start until September.  I think they brought the bow along for entertainment and practice.  They had a foam archery target tied on top of the coolers in the rear pool float.

Have to make a separate trip. I tow a kayak when I hunt alone, or one of us waits while towing meat across the lake. Easy peasy

Beer cooler is too far away and wife is too close? Is that guy in front violating a dog too? Man I wish I was back in Montana again. That vacation went by way too fast.
