from behind while towing the boat home from the lake :mad: :mad: :mad: . Luckily it was just a little tap and nothing was damaged, but I was a little angry. How in the hell do you not see a boat in front of you??? I'm also lucky because the person that bumped me probably didnt have insurance nor could afford to fix any damage.

that is like my worst nightmare, i always check behind me when traffic suddenly slows down to make sure some morron that isnt paying attention wont smack my boat.

Unlucky you got hit, but very lucky no damage to the boat!

Happened to previous I/O...guy and girlfriend kissing and forgot to stop...the car.

All I would have gotten would be a few cigarettes, an empty Natural light can and a Dale Earnhardt sticker. Don't really need any of those.

My jeep has pretty good brakes, but I can't imagine there are many people out there who can't stop faster than me (4000 lbs of vehicle with 4000 more attached to the bumper). How many miller light cans did you say he had?

Last week me and a few friends got nailed by a guy who had been drinkin and ran a red light as his excuse was he was lookin for cost cutters. We were towing a jetski, yes i know insert citicism below. But as high school kids jetskis are quite fun and knowing what its like for a skiier to have them around i stay clear of boats, in fact if a skiier is coming i stop and go to the side so he doesnt have a alot of waves.

Luckily the jetski wasn't damaged because all the fun would be gone because our Mastercraft is 2 hours north.

Nobody was hurt as we were in a GMC Tank i mean GMC safari van.

This thing aint no mini van...its a full conversion van.

Yeah none are mine. It was a friends, not jetskis owned by my family, im only in high school.

Without a Mastercraft in Wisconsin Rapids (central wisconsin) its nice getting on the lake in some form and the jetski is better than nothing.

On the water in some capacity is better than not being on it at all.

What happened to the Dr. Jim avatar?
