The biggest urban legend I've heard is the one about the novice bare boat charter couple who on leaving an anchorage forget to pull up their anchor and end up motoring in a circle, then call in a Mayday to report they are caught in a vortex. Funny, but didn't happen.

Good story! Am still laughing --- but can see myself doing something like that too.
