Interesting story, but the title makes no sense.

You have to watch the pop-up video with the story. Then it makes sense.

Well that is different, I wonder if he fouled with the ground tackle by accident ... I've never heard of them intentionally grabbing the rode to play with a boat.

I'd like to know of some other explanation as the bow doesn't seem to be violently jerking around like he's caught up in it. I thought he was going to intentionally ram the other as if to say: These !@%$ lines are getting in the way of my fishing...take that and don't come back!

Re: Think your boat is well anchored? Think again!!!

Boat owner comes back... “some jackass moved my boat!”

“Uh.. no, donkeys can’t swim that well, it was an orca”

Or

“I was here first! You’re too close! Move your boat!”

Why? What could possibly happen? I’m outside your scope and no possible way we could touch.

“Oh yeah? What if a killer whale came by, grabbed your boat, and towed it into me? Huh? Huh?”
