    Last week, I was in traffic and the truck didn't want to stop...my shoe was catching the edge of the gas pedal, and the the harder I braked, the more the truck was lunging forward. Initially thought I had a run-away Toyota truck, slammed the shifter to neutral, only to hear the motor rev up.....yep, can see how this can happen!!

    im sorry but if you are of the age where you can afford a boat like that, and you dont know how to launch it without submerging your truck , you dont deserve the boat.:cool:

    OH I KNOW!!!! lol Its almost hard to decide if i actually want to go boating, or just sit there and watch morons try to launch their boats

    You learn a lot about family interactions at the boat launch.

    the ramp near me, during low tide, gets so slick, I have seen a truck actually slide backwards into the water while winching the boat out.

    Great, I will probably go to the dealer in a couple months only to be asked if I want the latest TSB that will make it so dummies with more money than brains won't be able to do this.:D
    Seriously though, we are a society of idiots. They are all around us.
