Thanks Fever Mike,

I have not ever seen this unless a boat was in a collision or hit something in the water.

It is not unusual in other countries with tougher transport laws to not bother with making the trailer compliant and simply dropping the whole thing on an existing legal trailer.

It's also nice that they left the bumpers hanging on the sides, just in case they get side swiped going down the highway!

ANY boat can get damaged, broken, delaminated in water. Boats are NOT indestructible. We all must learn to respect the water and mother nature.

Raceboats do get run harder. Every single one of us have ran our boats to the max at one time or another--and then backed off. Raceboats get run hard, no matter what the water conditions
