“From the what’s-wrong-with-this-picture department: a boater looked down at the water only to find his boat trailer was still with him.
Honestly, if we only knew the language spoken here, we might get a quick answer to the question plaguing us all: how do you get so far from the boat launch without knowing that you never took your boat off of the trailer?
There may be two possibilities here: one is that he did it on purpose, but why would anyone ever do that? The other reason could stem from that big bottle of strong, European beer on the dashboard.”

This should serve as a reminder to never drink while operating a boat. How this man didn’t notice the trailer still attached until long after launch is baffling. Thankfully, no one was hurt but we’re betting that all of that extra weight can’t but too good for the engine.
