Those are a bunch of rednecks that borrowed the truck from work on a Saturday. There wasn't a rule they didn't break.

They're lucky they weren't killed.....

There was a travel lift in our area that was lifting a 40 Post in the winter once.... There was a block of ice about 8 inches thick that was wedged between the strap and the boat. The block of ice crushed when the boat was halfway up, snapped the strap, transferred all teh weight to the second strap and flipped the travel lift over.....luckilly no one was killed...

We also had a hydraulic line blow on the fork lift once and some moron, years earlier, removed the safety valve so the lift could pick up boats that were heavier than the lift was rated for.....well what he didn't realize is that safety valve also protects the lift should a line blow.... It slows down the rate at which the boom can bleed down so the load slowly lowers to the ground. Luckilly there wasn't a boat on the lift when the line blew but damn those forks fell quickly and oil blew all over the place....

To add insult to injury, all three of those Jimmy-necks are going to sue the crane owner and maybe the boat owner for their injuries.

I looked at it again. European tractor on the crane truck, funny licence plate on the unrecognizable minivan and the boat doesn't look like anything I've seen here.

My vote---euro-bubbas.

If you listen to the camera man he sounds swedish or something, but you can make out the word "chit"

What a bunch of idiots, very lucky one didn't get killed.
