How many hours do you have???
When you have nothing better to do sometime just do a search.
Maybe somebody should write a book.

It wasn't like that yesterday at noon when I walked by it.

Probably the crane guys or the tent guys. There is not much more to choose from as you were closest to the tent and no one could drive out that high.

I am looking at the photo, and it looks like a metal pole gouged it. Your boat sits high up ?? My guess is one of the fork cliff drivers hit it while moving chit around. Like the barrier fences or a tent pole, We have had both happen to us in the past. At the Norfolk VA show (you were there) I had to stand guard by the Fountains, as those IDIOTS, ran through at full speed just inches from the boats, the drivers just don't give a rats azz, they know if they damage it its not their problem, and the show sure as chit won't pay for it.

This would be reason # 99 why we will rarely do a boat show moving forward.

Have you reviewed and security camera's??? That would be my next move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 2005 Big Scottie was SBRT's best friend

I can't believe some di(kless POS would hit a HUGE yellow boat and flee

That sucks. The only thing I wanted to hit there was the chicks in yellow suites and tall brown boots

Sorry to hear that Scotty, Must be a yellow thing, My yellow Mustang got hit and run in the parking lot saturday, not quite as expensive of a fix as yours though.

Don't mean to laugh,,, BUT That was funny!!

Sorry to hear about the boat... I agree with the tent pole or some type of pole... It makes the most sense...

Who ever did it probably seen Scotty all week and said " I ain't telling him...... You tell him"" And RAN.. I think you should Round up all the workers.....grab one and shake the piss out him... He'll Talk... Just beat one really good.. Five will jump out of line..... and POINT to the person...... You'll find out!!
