NO TRANSOM TIE DOWNS.

Details are sketchy from the other post. The rumor is that the boat rolled. If it did slide, I think you would see a trench under the boat from where the bow dug out the sand on the way in. If it rolled, you would think the windshield would be mangled along with the rails and such. Actually, from those pics, the boat looks remarkably good for what it went through, sliding or rolling. Almost like someone 'placed' it there.
those fountains take a lickin' and keep on tickin'!!

I do remember seeing a 36 Apatchy that traveled about 100 yards up the bank and through the meadow...And that was with people steering it.

Apatchy pictured below.

Chris/WarParty36 sells the heavy duty straps. I am ordering some replacements as we speak.

If that happened at LOTO, what business is that? Looks familiar.

I'm pulling my tie-downs back out even if it's a mile trip..
