Default Bad start today down in Venice, LA

Looks like they missed the turn to Venice Marina and hit the breaks too hard. Brand new Invincible?

I was having a discussion just yesterday with a buddy that never uses transom straps on their 31 Cape Horn unless they are going to the Keys because he said "it's so heavy it aint moving"! I told him he's full of crap! I have to show him this!

That is not a good morning, at all. Yeah I think I would be a little nauseated that I am that stupid to not strap down a $700k boat.

You can see the ABS on the truck was working hard from the skid marks. When he gets home he can get a closer look at the other skid marks....

Really unfortunate. Hopefully minor damage.

looks like the skids on the bunks are starboard which makes it even slicker.

Besides overal length considerations for stalls I don’t understand why these trailers aren’t goosenecks. The new 450s can haul 21k off the bumper but why?

I tie my boat down all the time but I wonder if that would have mattered? That's a lot of force to stop.

That never would have happened if they would have been using a Rav 4 to tow it.

Goosenecks are awesome for the long haul but suck really bad with a long DRW short turning radius truck at tight boat ramps..IMHO

Everyone likes to make comments about the straps- but I would like to know did some other unaware driver cut him off to where he had to slam on the brakes?
