Well here in Australia trend setters we also have morons that shouldn't own boats. no photos but here it is. Old mate picks up his boat ( second hand) hooks to his commodore (aussie Pontiac to a degree) back said **** box boat down the ramp with wife in car. doesn't like the trailer getting wet so boat lands on boat ramp. didn't unhitch the boat from the trailer and couldn't wonder why it wouldn't come off the trailer. whilst trying to launch said boat the only had the park brake and wasn't in park. long story short, boat, trailer, and car with wife end up in the drink. wife escaped through the passenger window. ended up having a tow truck driver swim out and scull drag the whole rig out

The bow eye is still hooked to the trailer, pulling the front of the boat down and the stern up I think.

That's a bad day right there...

If you got one of these for your towing rig you could keep on pulling thru.

Shouldn't be too tough to figure out how much flotation is needed to float the trailer. That would be hilarious.
