Default Discovery Channel... Did anyone see "The Repossessors" tonight?

What a kick @ss show. This was real stories of companies that do this. Just like COPS, but toned down. There were stake out teams repossessing everything; cars, trucks, planes, quads, RVs, and even a ski-boat.

The ski boat was the last scene, and they actually waited for the debtor to take it to a lake, and use it all day, (in Oregon). They stole his trailer from his truck while they were out,. They waited for them to come in for a break and left the keys in the ignition as they left it tied to the dock. A repo dude jumped in, and took the boat to another launch ramp across the lake, and it was GONE.

Always remember to take those keys with you folks, even if just for a minute. I am even going to install a Kill Switch. Not to avoid repo, but just to avoid a theft at the dock.

I just saw a Chevy Silverado for sale on AutoTrader.com the other day, that was fitted with a stealth towing/repo device, that popped out of the bed. What a cool little toy to have.

That was a great show! Looked real easy to take a semi! It makes you wish you had the ignition keypad on your boat that they put in the correct crafts.

Yeah, they did talk it up a bit, but I was letting that slide since it was still so cool. I thought they might have said SKI boat, but they did repeat it as top of the line, high performance SPEED boat.

KICKASS,

However the repo guy that got the plane was an ass, he was pressuring the pilot to hurry up. I noticed he didn't ride with in the plane. I fly a little, and you never rush your preflight especially with unfamiliar aircraft!!!!!

High Performance speed boat

I think the dude who did the repo on the boat took off too fast from the spot at the dock. He had to leave a huge wake for the others docked there.
