Crazy Video!!

It takes awhile to master loading a boat, but not one that small!

My worst trailer loading, or unloading, was when I was towing back my 292 Formula with twin 454's when I first bought it...

It was hanging off the back of the tri-axle trailer at least 2' as the trailer had not been fitted to that boat yet.

I used 3 - 3" come-a-long tie downs, to keep the boat on the trailer, and I felt that I would be safe just to get it back to my shop (15 miles or so).

Well, on a two lane each way, surface street, the winch cable in front broke and that boat did a "Flipper" on me!

What I mean is if you ever saw any "Flipper" movies, it looked like my boat just about came off the rear of the trailer, and it was porpoising up and down like a weight lifter doing a bench press!

After I got my heart out of my mouth, I took another come-a-long and tied it down and made it safely back to the shop...

Crazy!

My best one was when I forgot the tie downs on the back & wondered why the boat would'nt float. Anyone who has'nt made a mistake is'nt telling the truth imo. Sometimes it's fun to just sit back & watch
