Default What's Wrong With This Picture?

I posted this picture in the "Postcards from the Great Loop" thread, but thought it deserved a place by itself....It was our "WTF" moment of the week, from Southport, North Carolina.

Sometimes you need a trailer where there are no roads or bridges

Maybe they were launching the boat and the trailer came off the hitch and floated away, so they had to get another boat and go retrieve it.

Probably wants to fish in really skinny water. Can roll around on the trailer almost anywhere😎

Maybe they have a house on an island and wanted a boat and trailer there. We had someone here a few years back with that situation and was asking for ideas on how to get his trailer to the island.

That is the way "they do it down South" and it's cheaper than this.
