 That would ruin your day. Any news on the backstory ? Trailer failure or emergency brake ?

 I would say trailer fail big time. Doesn't look like it's registered so possibly been   sitting around for a while. Not a good look for the poor bigger.

 The guy posted last night looking for a hand to get it sorted out. 
He said he was towing it down while things were quiet to adjust the trailer to fit the boat. We around the roundabout and went from driver to passenger in an instant. 


Does anyone know where the love of god goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

Definitely looked like the trailer gave way under the weight of the boat.

 Are they really that bad? I'm in the market for a boat and will steer well clear then!

They're given a bad rap but, in my experience, its not always justified. Plenty of references to good and bad experiences on this site and others.

I have a 2013 175 which has been bulletproof. Fuel efficient, not too noisy and always reliable (serviced regularly).
