Watched a small boat pass its owner once as he came off Alcoa Hwy onto Neyland. Driver and passengers were laughing until they realized it was theirs. Crossed Neyland and hit the guardrail. This was during Knoxville rush hour and luckily no cars were coming either way.

Dangit Roger, that could have been ugly real quick. Glad nobody else was involved and that nobody was hurt.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Two of my buddys was going fishing one night a few years ago. The one that owned the boat picked my other buddy up at his house. He put his gear in the boat, then they headed to the boat ramp. He said he pulled up at the dock and started to back the trailer in the water. Then he noticed the boat and trailer wasn't behind the truck. They back tracked and found it sitting in a store parking lot at the gas pumps like someone pulled up there and dropped the trailer right there.

Dang, that's pretty good, being right without posting! \:D \:D

You don't remember a few months ago when Bowriter told Crappie he was making a mental to never go anywhere with him because it was hazardous to one's health? \:D

Haha...oh, yeah...too dang funny

Yes, glad you are ok. I had my boat trailer tire pass me one morning on the highway.

LOL! I'm glad everything turned out ok. I lost a boat and trailer once on 240 and 40 in Memphis. One inch scratch on the right fender and broken 1 7/8 ball was all the damage I had. The good lord was watching out for the car behind me and the 18 wheeler beside me when it all came loose.

Well I would say that you were fairly lucky to only end up with a snapped trailer tongue

I worked at a boat dealership in high school. Once I had a winch stand break when a lady in a station wagon full of small children pulled out in front of me.

A 22 foot run about in the bed of your pickup truck is not a lot of fun when your a 17 year old kid. The back of the boat was still on the trailer the bow of the boat was about 12 inches from the back of the truck cab. And the truck seat was firmly placed in my colon!

Glad you are okay CL. I feel your pain.
