Winch Strap Use

7 posts in this topic

OK guys, I was driving 70mph on 94 yesterday. I passed a guy pulling about a 17'speed boat and noticed the winch strap AND safety chain were not connected. I pulled him over and told him. His reply, "I really don't think it's neccessary" as he connected them up rather fast. This guy was nuts wasn't he?

YES, He's an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly IMO.

Dave,

Obviously, he is crazy for not using these safety features. A big gust of wind could have lifted his boat off his trailer and he could have had his hands full and would be endagering the lives of those around him.

One question for you, though.......you "pulled him over"???? Are you some sort of law enforcement officer or just very persuasive?

huskminn,
Back already from the honeymoon? Hope you had/are having fun.

No law enforcement job here. I had da wife wave him over to the side of the road. I didn't want to see anyone get hurt from one guys stupidity and have a flying boat in their face.

Dave,

Ah yes, back from the honeymoon....had a great time, saw lots of wildlife, got snowed on, waded some beautiful rivers, caught some cutthroat trout (one 20"!!) and stared at the mountains a lot.

Thanks for remembering.......

boss,
That did cross my mind after I started down 94 again. Kind of made me second guess my thoughts.

If any of you own the SUV and boat I stopped on 94 eastbound Sunday evening, around 5:15pm, I'll say something now I should have told you in person...................
YOU ARE NUTS!!

Ahhh, I feel better now. smile.gif

    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.

    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.

Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
