Default Repo Man?

Watching Airplane Repo and someone around Warren Co MI is getting a 50 Hustler Repossessed.
But looks like they hired an AT to hunt em down?

Just curious if this is "made up" for TV, or a real deal?

Scripted, there is a nice thread about it on here somewhere. Still neat to watch though!

They used a buddies boat for another issue as well. “Reality” shows? FAR from it.

We were staying at the hotel Marina the weekend this was filmed. Both boat owners were hired for the show and it was supposedly re enacting a repo that had happened sometime in the past. The boat owners were always running their boats etc.

They filmed one repo on the eastern shore of Maryland (they also popped a car at the same place). They way they got the car is by snatching the keys out of the valet's key box that sat conveniently way away from everything else (store, pool, restaurant, etc, etc). The real issue ....this marina never had valet service ever. As for the boat, broad daylight with 6 different camera angles, people all over the place, They found the keys in like 10 seconds and knew how to turn the batteries on, got it started (not that the motors would need to warm up or anything) and pulled it right out and off they went.
