These stout fellows decided to go for a polar bear style swim.
The ice was still in the marina, so they used the handy rocks lining the boat basin to try to break the ice.

The marina owner eventually came along and threw them out. This guy got style points for the lean.

After talking to them I could only shake my head. Two of them couldn’t swim.

Never do anything you don’t want to explain to the paramedics.
