Just been told by a mate of mine who help him put the boat back on the trailer said the traffic cop was at the back of the boat when it fell off the trailer😳the guy had nothing holding the boat down only held on by the winch he was told by the traffic cop to follow him so probably got nicked for it 👍

A few points on the license (and a stern talking-to from someone who didn't get past book 2A of the Janet & John books) is still better than a Darwin Award.

you can see pics of what looks like straps still on the trailer, i assume they were holding the cover on and not the boat though.

i assume driving with an unsecured load is an offence?

i would have some sympathy if there was straps and they broke.

funnily enough, i've just got new ones for going to ERR, must remember to put them on!

cheers

If you look at the clouds in the background Id say he's not lost it. He is expecting a heavy downpour and is in fact launching it early.
