Damn some of you guys are dicks! That is a fellow fishermans pride and joy! I hope you two who are talking about rear tow straps are joking. You have no idea what happened, nor do I, but my guess is tow straps would not have helped. I have been boating for 20+ years and have heard both sides of the rear tie down story. Personally I use them but if you get broadsided or hit hard they are not going to save the boat
If you think these guys are bad or insensitive...you should have been here a few years back...this is mild..... have a great day.....and remember this is BD...

I hope it was property damage only, names exchanged only

Initially, that's what the cop is thinking.

I guessing, if the boat and winch look like that, the trailer is totaled.

Another thought by the cop, "Can I get a tag out of this? Maybe illegal parking; Naw, it says tires must be within 18" of the curb, but no tires on the boat, Damn. I guess it will have to be illegal dumping/littering on the roadway...".

On a serious note: I hope no one was hurt and the owner has insurance coverage.

Jim

Heres my take.
Striper was heading north on telegraph 40 mph in right lane. Car headed west on santa fe in left lane doing 45 mph ran red light nailed rear passenger side fender on trailer...damage on starboard side of boat is in the shape of said fender.
Driver headed west did not see red light due to sun in his eyes....or DUI.

    Those crappy stripers with even crappier trailers. What a dick leaving his pos in the street. Probably trying to scam his insurance company.

    A comeback is supposed to be in the first reply to my comment, not the second. Nice try though.

    Reactions here weren't much different than those on the striper forums. You're gonna get the full spectrum on something like this.

    It's BD. Of course many here are dicks. But, we are also some of the nicest dicks around. There's a pecking order with bayliners, stripers, and the rest of the boats, so striper guy's always get shit. They know it's just poking fun. Of course we all know this sucks and nobody hopes anybody was hurt. Can't change it, so gotta try some humor. :).
    What's the pecking order?
