‘Mayday! Mayday!’

This guy takes his new boat down to Cape Town from Jo’burg for a fishing trip.

On his way back with the boat, his 4×4 breaks down outside Beaufort West.


He tries all he can but the 4×4 just doesn’t want to go anymore.

He tries his cell – no reception. After standing for about 4 hours without any cars going past, he suddenly realises that the boat has got a radio.

Just maybe he is lucky and there is someone listening on the emergency channel. So he hops onto the boat, connects the battery and starts calling.

‘Mayday! Mayday!’

Just as he almost gives up hope, there’s this faint definitely Capey voice coming over the air…

“State dyour poezition.”

This chap looks at his boat GPS and gives his position over the radio.

Long silence…

Then a voice comes over the air again.

‘Djislaaaaaaaik Meneer, djy moesie land darem met a moesa spoed getref het!”
