Stupid Power Boat Tricks

It's Pottahawk weekend, a gathering of (largely) powerboats off Pottahawk Pt. in Long Point Bay.
This boat will not be there this year.

All things considered, a cheap lesson.

Re: Stupid Power Boat Tricks

At least they dumped the boat over near the launching ramp. That was almost smart.

Now, about those 2 bottles of booze... break out the snorkel gear.

Re: Stupid Power Boat Tricks

The bottles have been recovered by a diving Dockster. Now, not to pat myslef on the back, but after salvaging most of their other provisions, including, but not limited to, 2 Little Caesars pizzas and two bags of potato chips, one ketchup, on dill pickle flavoured, i didn't have high hopes for single malt scotch on the bottom.
After five minutes of bottom time, a bottle of peppermint schnapps and a bottle of peach schnapps were raised.

Re: Stupid Power Boat Tricks

How do salvage rights work on 10 minute old wrecks? Or is this a case of 'finders-keepers'?
