8. Fishing lure (cut fishing line while trying to rescue the shell lumber bucket)
9. Ziploc 1-Gallon Bag
10. Calphalon sauce pan
11. Sponge
12. Filet Cutting Board (we found it washed on shore at Gun Cay and I guess now someone else will find it)
13. Boat Hook
14. Straw Hat that actually fit Ted’s head
15. Boat Scraper (it was tied to the boat while the Captain and First Mate were cleaning the bottom of the Salty Dog, but it mysteriously untied itself from a bowline)

    Just as long as no two or four legged mammal fall overboard, the rest can be replaced. :)

  2. Dude, a Florida Gators styrofoam cooler fell in and you didn’t jump in to retrieve it? Major FAIL.
