Waterlogged Hitchhiker

Author:

Bouncing along Washington's Puget Sound one dark night, a speedy little 20-foot outboard cabin cruiser caught up with a 1,200-foot raft of logs moving slowly under tow to an Everett, Wash. sawmill. Result for the cruiser: a few bumpy minutes as she climbed up on the logs and a long, free ride to Everett as the uninvited but helpless guest of the towing company.
