It was me!! I will have photos tomorrow. The digital camera got wet along with just obiut everything else but someone took pictures with a regular camera.
It was very low tide and the ramp was extremely slippery. When I went to back the boat off the trailer it wan't completly floating. I put the boat in reverse and the truck came with me. I put the boat in forward and it stopped the truck from sliding for a second then it started to jack knife and slide again. The truck was into the water up to the cab but then by the grace of god it hit the pier and stopped. Most of the stuff in the side compartments was ruined (battery jumper, charger, 19 vold impact, lights, etc) but other then some sctraches and a dent, the truck was ok. It took about 10 hours to clean and desalt everything but it could have been worse.
But the answer is YES, It WAS GINO!!!
