Sure...it's the GPS's, the wind's and the night's fault Anything else to blame?

"Last night this boat ran 150 feet onto shore due to low water level, high winds and a bad GPS signal. Anastasi Towing of Blanco, TX had to lift the boat over the cliffs and onto the road with the assistance of county officials and Anastasi workers to be safely loaded onto the boat trailer. Just goes to show how much you can trust technology these days.Thankfully no injuries.:

Hey, I've got pics just like that!...except it was a 40' Formula express cruiser on the Albert Whitted airport Jetty here in St. Pete.

A nice fella got himself liquored up and...eh-hem..."borrowed"...the boat the the evening.

Good thing it stayed on the wall! Doesn't look like it would have floated too long if it made it back into the water!
