My favorite boat wreck story involves a Coke machine and a 31 Tiara express cruiser
The last place I used to work my boss had a 31 Tiara. For some reason he had a trailer for it. One day he decided that his boat was not going fast enough (only 40kts) so he figured if he pressure washed the bottom he would get a little more speed out of it. The marina his boat was at had a ramp
so he hooked his trailer to the company truck and headed out (2" ball on the truck and a 2 5/16 receiver). Oh yeah, no chains either.
So he gets to the marina, puts the boat on the trailer and pulls it out. He pulls it straight out of the water
and leaves it on the top of the ramp
. No problems so far. Pressure washes the bottom, still no problems. Decides to put the boat back in the water, soon as he shifts the truck into reverse then the trailer jumps off the truck (with boat attached) runs over his 3 hour old pressure washer, then a Coke machine and launches itself. The Coke machine was totally destroyed and cans of soda were all over the place. About a minute later all the kids
from the marina came and looted the machine. The guy who owned the place just sat back and laughed the whole time. BTW he found out Coke machines are not that cheap
