The boat crew were do­ing nest box main­te­nance along the Mar­ley Point fore­shore when Si­mon found him­self in a pre­car­i­ous po­si­tion. “I was the fixer on the front of the boat and some­times get­ting into the boxes there is a bit of a chal­lenge,” he said. “I grabbed onto the tree and that went well, but Rob Del Busso came up to the front of the boat to help and that tipped the bal­ance for me.”

Si­mon was left hang­ing, with his feet hooked in the boat and his hands grip­ping the log, a sit­u­a­tion eas­ily re­cov­er­able had Rob grabbed his life jacket. “Rob could have grabbed me but in his fit of laugh­ter he backed away which moved the boat fur­ther and stretched me out com­pletely,” Si­mon said. “I could see the funny side of it, I’ll never live it down.” The pho­tos were taken by Gary Howard who was in an­other boat.

“I could see the funny side of it, I’ll never live it down.”
