Beach umbrella, you beauty...... Remember fishing with my uncle, from a bondwood/Fibreglass stinkboat. about 30 years ago. Uncle had a huge umbrella on the boat, and a puff of wind took it over board. No reason to panic, shaft made of timber (one of those umbrellas that go into the centre piece of a garden table, thick pole with hinge.... anyhow, reasoning that it could not sink, and that air would be trapped in the dome. it rolled onto its side, air came out, and sunk like a stone...... much to our disbelief...just watched it fade into the deep. I happened so quickly, did not even have time to think about sending fishhooks after it..
Cheers all Andybear :lol:
PS we used to use it as a sail too
