Ouch! Man loses boat when he calls favorite bar.

Alan Thompson is a logical man–when he fell and injured himself while sailing the uninsured boat he just flew to the United States to purchase back to the UK, he grabbed his satellite phone, and dialed for help–at his local pub back in England.

The owner of the pub contacted authorities, and quickly the Coast Guard was on its way (Thompson was about 600 miles off the coast of Bermuda at the time).  Turns out, he’d broken his pelvis–and the Coast Guard needed to get him off the boat to treat him.

As for the boat?  Well, he was sailing by himself, so…if you’re bored, you could head out to the Atlantic and have a look around, see if you can find yourself a free boat.
