Reverse Engineering

The weather is great, but brings with it a new risk. It’s so hot I “need” to go swimming.

Problem is, once in how do I get my fat aging carcass out of the water and up on the dock, I need a ladder but have no clue. My solution is to skulk around on the yacht club dock and “reverse engineer” their design – it must be fancy.

Turns out their dock ladders are very simple. Ingredients: three 2x4s and a handful of screws. Now I can get in; and get out.
