Melanie Banas, a Protection Island resident, bails out her inflatable dinghy as part of preparations for her commute home Wednesday morning.

The craft collected a considerable amount of rainwater while Banas was out of town for a few weeks, but she had the little boat seaworthy in just a few minutes and the outboard motor even started on the first pull.
