Dubious Distinction Award

The person who is deemed to have done the most to save the other members of the club from having their own nautical blunders recognized.

2021 Inscription

This award is given to the person deemed to have done the most to save the other members of the Club from having their own blunders recognized. This handsome piece of Questionably useful furniture is given in grateful appreciation that the previous recipient won’t receive it two times in a row.

The club owes its admiration to this year’s earner who had launched his boat one Sunday and was preparing to go out and race. He noticed some water in the bilge and thought that was odd, but proceeded to bail the water. But the water just kept on coming back.  After a few minutes of bailing, he realized that he had done the dreaded deed – forgot to put in the plug! Maybe Randy Rubinstein was right to never leave his plug out of his boat all those years – he did not want the hat rack!! For this special move, we award the Hat Rack for 2021 to:
