The Dinghy Motor

My dad had a very difficult time with the dinghy motor today. When he
tried to come back here from town, the motor died not halfway across.
Try as he might he could not get it started, so he had to row back. It
took him about forty minutes, all of which we spent watching him through
the binoculars. When he got back I got an ice-cold Coca-Cola Zero out
and put it in a glass with some ice. He drank it in about seven seconds.
It was a very hot day, and I'm glad that he got himself hydrated again
with a cold bottle of water. Thank goodness he got back safely.
