THis was one of the comments under the story:

This is what happens when you try to tow a 33 foot boat with a land rover only designed to tow 4500lbs. That boat and trailer together likely weigh 10,000 pounds. Some people have more money than brains. At any rate I blame Obama, this never would have happend if Caribou Barbie was in the white house.

when I first saw the pictures i thought the Land rover just got hit by the trailer not that it was towing the trailer. Like you said some people have more money than sense

Damn, looks like a Formula 311. I don't know where they got Thundercraft from, maybe Thunderbird???? That rig had to be 10k all together, way too much for that Rover.

I thought I saw that the driver of the SUV was also a law man, unless it was poorly written leaving out the "reports that" from the sentence. If not, I do believe I would like to go to work for that police office, man you can drive a Land Rover AND have a 33 ft Thunderboat.

Seems like a big boat for a tandem axle trailer?
