I don't think that picture is of a boat. It is a hot tub. That man was fishing from a hot tub that was floating down the river. Sounds like a party.

I was kidding. The thought of him chopping his fingers off was kind of funny to me. Don't know why, but it is still cracking me up.

Actually, you were partially correct. It's the BRAND NEW Clackacraft hot tub drift boat with built-in margarita cooler-dispenser. I'm thinking tequila was involved in the mishap and the subsequent self-mutilation.

But I COULD be wrong...

"Scott said rescue crews later recovered Messenger's fingers and sent them to Harborview.

It's still unclear whether or not Messenger's fingers were reattached. "

They actually found his fingers??? Were they just floating in an eddy downstream? Amazing!
