A man in Florida put the gas nozzle in a rod holder and pumped $60 of gas into the deck of his boat. Oops!

There are all kinds of new fisherman out there that do not know and I don't understand why they even want a boat. I heard this story from the ones that helped pull the boat from the water with the winch on the front of his truck. This guy backs down the boat ramp which was a major chore for him. It caught the other fisherman's attention standing in the parking lot. He finely gets the trailer wheels in the water and drops the Jack/wheel. This guy also has a new pick up with air suspension; and lowers the back of the truck until it popped off the ball hitch. The boat on the trailers rolls into the water with such force bringing water over the back and of course he did not put the plug in and the boat sinks.

They all rush down the ramp to see if they can help. This guy just sad that it was so tightly strapped to the trailer that he though it was suppose to stay attached to the boat. Mind you this was a NEW 22 ft.. Triton with a 300 on it. It took two 4 wheal drives strapped together to pull it out of the water. Nothing sticking up put the Tongue of the trailer to hook the winch cable to. New boat owners should make a few trips with someone that is in the know of how to unload and load a boat as well as the operation; before they kill someone besides themselves.

My brother in law put diesel fuel in his tank instead of gas, cost a bunch to clean out the whole fuel system. Yes you can't fix stupid.

Pretty incredible story Donald. IMO the dealer should always go to the lake with the new owner. The only exception would be if the buyer was a repeat customer. The dealer that sold the boat to this guy knew he was a newbie.

Boat dealer oughta ask if they ever owned a boat. If not then at least give them a walk through a YouTube or something

Very good point, working at BPS, years ago in the service Dept, you could always pick out the newbies. I donโ€™t know how many launch ramp calls I made with the shop truck
