Does not appear to have any rear straps.
I can see the add making a point (covering ground comment) Imagine how many people out there are doing stupid chit like this everday though! Just go to a launch ramp and see all the idiots doing stupid stuff is proof

LMAO!

Actually, that hull was not damaged very much at all. I look forward to seeing what it looks like when it "resurfaces". Its a a good thing it was step-bottom. If it were straight, it would have slid back down into the water.

The engines, drives, props... well that was another story.

For the record, that is a towing mirror strapped to the front left fender of the truck. The scan of the image made it grainy. You can see the mirror on the actual photo.

Thanks for the info.

Orca specs state all of their boats are 8'6" wide, so I'll admit to being wrong there. Depending on if its the 24 or 27, it may or may be a bit too heavy for a 1/2 ton truck. It sure looks to be "very well loaded down" due to all the "stuff" on the boat.

That's it. I've had it too. I'm so worked up that I'm heading to Costa Rica. I hear there is a "casino" down there.
