funny video

A friend of mine (Marty) who owns a very small marina and a couple are taking their Trawler down the ICW - Marty is a 'gas' for sure. Marty's been documenting the entire trip on Facebook really well - with pictures every hour.

Marty awoke the other night to noises on the boat at a Marina in North Carolina.

below is one of the video's that Marty made when discovering the new guest on their boat.

please be advised : Marty is NOT PC (politically correct).....and ps: no harm came to the guest in case you get alarmed while watching the video.

Re: funny video

Raccoons are like small bears on crack. Don't get yourself into a scuffle with one. They will kick you a$$ for sure.

Re: funny video

Raccoons are not shy about climbing in any way they can.. we have a friend that ended up in hospital for a rabies shot after trying to shoo a couple of interlopers off the boat.. they'd found the dogfood stash. They can open snaps, push open hatches over and can squeeze through your typical cockpit opening hatch. They are persistent and quite fierce when cornered.

Re: funny video

they were tied up at a dock and the raccoon got on from the dock. there's another video of Marty chasing the thing around for about 3 minutes before it jumped ship.
