Trailer problems was my first thought also.

Re: Someone loose a boat..!?!

Yeah no trailer? Someone took a lot of time blocking that boat up to leave it there.

I'm thinking it'll take minutes (not hours) to find who the owner is... and if it WAS a trailer problem, I imagine nobody is more upset than the owner. That's not what I'd call a "free" quality boat.

Just hope it wasn't stolen and left there.

Almost guaranteed the trailer failed and they went to have it fixed.

Truck driver hauling the boat and the tow truck driver are both I D 10 T award winners.
Sounds a bit more like the tow truck driver's fault... The guy hauling the boat can't make him tow with the load, but he should have called a different tow truck when the first said "drop the boat here."

People are putting large powerboats in all kinds of weird places in NJ lately.

Re: Someone loose a boat..!?!

"Abandoned for hours"
Looks like the nooze writer was using a "Big Word For The Day" calendar. I think the rest of us wouldn't call it "abandoned" if it was on blocks, obviously set down with care, even if that was overnight.
The truck driver apparently had no paper or pencil or tape to secure a note, and his cell phone battery was dead so he couldn't call the police, and he must have worked solo, or his spare truck was down for repairs, so he couldn't tell his partner to bring up the spare righ and he couldn't tell the cops he was leaving the boat for a few hours. That's all understandable, happens to all of us. (Uhuh.)
But whoever wrote the article...really...obviously not a journalism school graduate, because they all know Silly Season doesn't begin until August.

"Obstructing a shoulder". What is that, a $100 summons?
