Here is a little tip to all of you young kids who get into trouble on the water and look to get rescued. When a boat stops by to pick you up, don't spend the whole time worrying about the cost of the rescue. Oh yes, when you get back on shore make sure you thank your rescuers or else you will look like a big jerk.

That is exactly what happened to a German tourist in New Zealand. While paddling back to the launch site, currents caused him to flip over. A fishing boat stopped by to help but he hesitated as he was worried that the rescue was going to cost to much.
