Thank goodness. I hope the engines are okay.

was the boat really attached to the truck like in the article or was it just the the safety chain under the winch and the strap holding it on? Inquiring minds want to know.

By stealing and smashing up a F*********S boat the thief has (inadvertently) done the world a favour.
My thoughts and prayers are also with the engines and I hope they make a speedy recovery.

What an idiot! Everyone knows you need at least an F-250 to tow a boat that size!
Tied up the hiway for hours right before rush hour on a hot summer afternoon.....He's lucky someone didn't strangle him.

DougActually, it caused a major traffic jam on Rt. 1 in town because they diverted all the traffic off of I-95 on to local roads while they cleaned up the hiway. It took me about 15 minutes to go the equivalent of 1 block. And unlike certain other people, other countries don't deny me entrance when I travel...:D:p

quite a mess in that video

It was. I'll see if the wreck is in the tow company yard. If it is I'll try to get some pics.

Remember those old Boston Whaler ad where a guy sawn the boat in two?That's also been done by McKeeCraft and Sundance and several other companies since but I think you may be correct that BW started the marketing idea.

Is it just me or does it seem apparently normal people are going nuts at a greater pace than usual?

My computer is too slow to watch the video. I'll be the first in this thread, to question the actions of the police. They sideswiped him because he had stolen a boat????


Carter, I though you were a Suthern belle?

I bet you knew the customer who already purchased the boat was the INS?;)

I didn't see any side-swiping going on, just a dumb-ass thief thinking if he dumped his load he would have a better chance of getting away.

DougNope. . . Forest L. Woods was the first to market his boats that way.

He was swerving back and forth trying to dump the boat, just forgot it was tied on.

And if they did have room to force him to stop by sideswiping him in a location where it would endanger other traffic... do it. When you start careening around in a ton or two of steel at dangerously high speeds you're just as able to kill someone as a nut with a kalashnikov.

Holland was eventually arrested and charged with larceny, reckless endangerment, reckless driving and other motor vehicle charges.
Such as being an a**hole, thinking he could get away from The Connecticut Schutzstaffel, stealing an FG boat in the first place and SO many more.

Just wondering why Offiser Opie didn't have his lights on until he pulled across numbnutz' bows, though....
