Good thing it was a light-weight aluminum boat.


Have a great day of boating

Hmmm, just another day of the boat taking him for a ride. :-)

If that was me and my CCTV cameras caught it you can bet your bippy it would never be posted online.

Are you stupid?

He gets on point at 54 seconds in. Not saying the guy who forgot to secure the boat is stupid. We all have done some boneheaded things in our life. It's just that the video reminded me of Paul's video on the subject.

Closest I came was putting the tongue of a utility trailer through my rear window. Was unloading a lawn tractor, and had loaded it by tipping it up, driving up and then lowering it back down. For unloading, I figured gravity would do the trick for me, no problem. I was mostly right, I unhitched and it did just fine tipping back as i unloaded, but once the tractor wheels hit the ground the trailer shot forward and the tongue went right through the back window. Maybe should have blocked the tires...
