    I think you need to re-caption that one... since that boat wasn't even in the water. That particular problem is caused by a knucklehead who can't drive a truck while towing a load (i.e. he was driving like there was no trailer back there). The boat was subject to Newton's First Law of motion... an object in motion will remain in motion until acted on by external force. Hence, when the truck hit the pole, the boat continued forward until finally the resistance of the truck cab brought it to rest.

    Default I don't need no stinkin trailer

    Who needs a boat trailer anyway - I always used to load my boat in the back of the truck - worked great for a 16' canoe.....

    That would be quite the surprise if you were sitting in the back seat of the cab.

    I think Joat covered the situation here. Looks like the driver could have used a few more tie down straps, LOL.
    Not sure what this has to do with drinking and driving a boat though?!

    Very true, but he would of been waiting a very long time before the tide would ever reach the boat.

    I wonder how fast he would have to go to be able to launch it over the top of some knucklehead tying up a launch ramp in Whittier .
