I also saw it on the way back from Key West, there were alot of fiberglass skid marks all over the road. Soon after that I was behind a 42 Cig with No tie down straps!

Wasn't there another mishap like this that had a Nortech company truck towing it also?

The winch isn't on the post, looks like a jack knife ? sad site to see

Are the Nortech accidents just a coincidence?

No, of course not. You can pick up a schedule a nor-tech.com/roadsideentertainment and choose the time and date of the next one thats closest to you.

The boat was blue and green, I want to say it had a class sticker on the bow but I was half asleep and dont really remember anything else.

Man, that's a shame. What a beautiful boat.

Couple shots- one from Thursday and from Ft Myers Beach last year.
