Boat Safety begins not with oars, but with determination and courage. Each vessel, port and starboard, must be deemed seaworthy. Each sailor in aforementioned vessels employ must be judged by a court of the deep seas as being buoyant and intrepid. For every barnacle accounted, there must be a jib, pulley, and aft. When the nigh winds howl at ye wooden leg, a boat safety expert must welome them not with merely a grimace, but a defiant scowl, your good eye glistening with the grit of the anticipation of battle. To safely maneuver a boat from one channel to another strait, from these waters to those shores, from bay to bight to tomorrow’s evanescent anchorage, a true practitioner of boat safety must muster an unparalleled depth of knowledge of all things life preserver, choke, and mast. Unto each sail, may ye flap in safe waters, and unto each mooring may ye sway in safe harbor, for where the creed of boat safety travels, thereunto all men shall be safe boating.
Two years ago I filmed a short episode of Rob Michael Hugel’s webisode I Hate Being Single that was intended to air in an upcoming episode of MTV’s Made. The episode was put on hold and then never aired sadly…until last week! Out of the blue comes our short, resurrected from the grave and on national television! Yahoo!!!
Filmed on a chilly Williamsburg day in 2012, this short is a sweet exploration of puppy love gone wrong, and done so right. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way – no – wait – every single time. Great work Rob! Can’t wait for season two, filmed last winter and coming out January 2015 to an internet near you!
