Tie down straps ? Who needs those ? The weight of the boat will keep it on the trailer

No they said the trailer was on the tow (salvage) truck "in the reverse position."

Surprised that somebody hasn't stopped and sawed the motors off the transom already.

It is Miami.

Looks like an FL number ending in "Z". Doesn't that mean registered as homemade?
