Last summer on lake winnipesaukee some guy was too busy staring at his gps and drove his boat thirty feet onto an island. He later observed that his gps unit was at least thirty feet off.

Looks like the prop is still in the water. Should be no problem backing off.

always make sure you find a SANDY shore line before beaching your boat for the kids to play on

I would at least put the biminy up and hang some fenders if I were staying at that dock for a while

Now kids you say mommy was driving, son you are not getting off, get me a BREW

Maybe his trailer is at the top of the hill and he was taking a short-cut?
