It all went well getting the boat on the trailer and since he wasn't going far he felt he didn't need the tie downs. He made a sharp turn off the highway right near where I was standing and all the water in the boat rushed to one side. You can probably guess the rest.

The weight of the water all on one side flipped the 19' fiberglass ski boat right off the trailer making a sound I'll never forget as it slid upside down along the road.

The outboard looks to be worth more than the whole setup. Hope he was insured

Years ago, in Houston rush hour traffic there was a young smart A driving like a fool with a large jet-ski in the back of his short bed truck...tailgate down. He was first in in line at the light and nailed it when he got the green. The jet-ski was apparently not tied to ANYTHING and he drove right out from under it and dumped in the middle of a busy intersection. When he and his buddy jumped out to check the damage, beer cans rolled out of the cab. I wish I would have had a camera.

Yep, does look like damage to the front.
