Gone Fishin’

Why Not Me? BannerPreviously: Having covered the aircraft owned by the museum—it is time to set-up the mission our heroes will become involved in.

78-year-old Cap Sezevich set out from the Port of Danger Bay for a day of fishing on a pre-dawn morning—he was anticipating a quiet day of fishing…

Season Eleven—Adventure 3.5—Historic Air Force—Episode 6:

Cap sets out on Lake Superior

Cap sailed for hours

Cap sailed for hours—there was this spot near Whitefish Point—where legend had it the lake-trout practically jumped in the boat! He was bound and determined to check it out! Yessir—bound and determined!

Hours passed and soon the day was beginning to lean closer to-night. As with anyone on a long journey—Cap became quite sleepy and unlike driving a car, Cap could set the GPS navigation and take a nap. He was so far out on the lake, he could no longer see any shoreline. And too—this was not a shipping lane, so it was unlikely he’d run across any lake boats or in or outbound “salties.”

He set the GPS navigation system—and an alarm to wake him, and fell very quickly asleep.

What he didn’t know—was that the internal frammis-modulator on the mild-band adjudicator had failed. This caused the trawler to turn ever-so-slightly north and deeper into the open water.

It was some six hours later when Cap woke to the sound of his alarm—and quickly noticed he wasn’t where he should be. He was in the middle of—where? In the not too far distance, a storm was a’brewin’.

Not a small storm—but a gully-thumper of a storm.

It was then that his biodiesel fueled-electric-hybrid engine failed—not just a little—but completely.

Not a small storm—but a gully-thumper of a storm.

Not a small storm—but a gully-thumper of a storm.

He tried to radio for help—but all systems were down.

A total systems meltdown.

Thus ends this Adventure…but our story? To be continued…
