Rub a dub dub, four men in a tub

The New York Times has resurrected the Kerry as Hero campaign  theme. But Tom Maguire has raised some  well—researched questions about that. Yesterday he asked:

Are Michal Kranish, Boston Globe reporter and Douglas Brinkley, historian and Kerry hagiographer, capable of eliciting relevant information during an interview?  If so, their own interview notes might shed some light on a Swift Boat mystery the NY Times chose to resurrect last Saturday.  The puzzle — how can four men fit in a three man boat?  Answer — they can't, so who is lying, or misremembering, when they say they were?
