Opinion: Act of kindness was very inspiring

Last Sunday afternoon we were out sailing on Lake Champlain. We got a little too close to a shallow area south of Fields Bay and before completing a tack (away from shore), we slowly hit the muddy bottom. We were in no danger but were stuck.
My crew and I set out to extract ourselves by using our dinghy and an anchor to “kedge” off, but before long a powerboat with two persons aboard offered their assistance. In no time they pulled us off into deeper water.
I offered them many thanks. I then offered money but they would have none of that. So I told them I would pay it forward. My trailer is now loaded up with firewood and is destined for a friend in Middlebury.
