LMAO. I would imagine the brakes went out.... Or a serious miscalculation.

My guess is that it was a busy ramp and he was having trouble backing it in. Everyone was getting upset with him, so he thought he'd try it this way!!LOL

As you can see by the picture the ropes tied to the back of the trialer are attached to another trailer. Ever try backing 2 trailers up, not easy. Its amazing what you can do with a

James Bond truck, but the guy did the fatal mistake of leaving the windows open.

You know, I joked when I pulled up to a boat ramp that's at the end of a road and they put a full stop sign near the waters edge. Perhaps there are actually people in this world that need it...

[sarcasm]To be fair it looks to be a tricky launch ramp.[/sarcasm]

I like the sheriff boat next to the dock.

Last week at Prescott saw a guy launch his boat and as he was pulling the trailer out ripped his front fender on the dock by turning too soon.

This is just an observation, but I've always had better luck by backing the boat into the water instead of going forward. It just always seems to have turned out better.

Maybe that's just me.

He has filed a law suit against the truck and boat companies for failure to provide proper launching instructions. Also named in the lawsuit is the launch owner for not posting warning signs. The guy will come out of this will millions. laughlaugh

he may have been trying to figure out just how far exactly he would need to back his boat for it to float off the trailer crazy Great monday humor though

The sad part of it is, somewhere there is a schmuck attorney that would take this case, and fight for this bone head.

I saw a bumper sticker once that said “Stupid Should Hurt”

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
