VIDEO: Tow, tow, tow the boat

It might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but reality finally crashed the haul-out party.

The task: pulling a motoryacht out of the water.

When the first truck didn’t have the power for the job, a tow truck was chained to the first one. Then a dump truck was chained to the tow truck.

Click play to watch.

This mechanical sled dog team may have seemed logical, but once the chains go taut, the yacht slowly emerges from the water before the plan unravels and the front end is yanked off the truck.

No word on whether the boat got to where it was intended, but we suspect it eventually did. Don’t they always?
