This past Sat, I went to Boca Grand (Gasparilla Island) for an Easter egg hunt
with our grandchildren. After the gala event, I drove to the South most end, to
Boca Grande Pass and Lighthouse. I came across this boat, a real nice twin
engine Center Console. According to the park ranger, it arrived about 2:00am,
reportedly with steering problems. When I arrived Sat about 11:00am, a
professional tow company was already on site with two boats.

Wow what a damn fail. Did he even go in the boat to check if it had water in it?

Judging by the pictures in the full set, there was no need for him to go in the boat. The pics show water going in while it was sitting on the sand.

Here's to hoping the boat owner had insurance. If not, then YIKE$$$!!! I wonder what the back story is on this vessel? Why did it end up on the beach?

Standing on the beach with my camera, watching this unfold, felt a bit surreal.
It seemed pretty obvious to me, that it would roll over as soon at it hit deeper
water. I was thinking, once they get it a few feet off the beach, in very shallow
water (still partially sitting on the bottom), they will stop to pump it, get it level,
and then pull it into deeper water.

I watched as they just dragged it off, out in Boca Grande pass, and like I thought,
over and down she went.

I have posted a few more previously un-posted pictures, be sure to check them out, at the link below.

That towing company might want to take the word professional off their business cards.
(and competent if that's there as well)

I thought my day was going bad...... I don't feel nearly as bad now!

This is totally unbelieveable, especially from a "professional" company...

So if you see this guy coming to 'help' you and your boat out,
what would you do?
