    I’m not sure this counts, it’s coming out of the water so unless you’re going to wade around in the water to strap it down it’s would be hard. Second as tall as it is or wasn’t going on the road so I’m not sure securement was even possible.

    There has got to be a way to secure it, I see them running down the road like that (with pilot cars of course) around me pretty frequently. If I was gonna be on the hook for possibly dropping a multi million dollar boat off a trailer I would be wading in the water making sure it was on there lol. It's nuts when you see those things going up 75 where there are some hills near Ocala FL, those dudes haul ### to get speed to go up them.

    You wouldn’t necessarily be on the hook. Whoever owns the company would be but as an employee not necessarily you. This is probably one of those things they’ve done a 100 times and this on bit them. You don’t see a boat that tall on the road every day, that little KW is probably 10’ to the top of the cab and the front or the hull is over that. That things at least 18 feet tall.

    Look again once it gets up on flat ground. It's 25 foot easy.

    The cradle was set way too far in on the trailer for that boat, in the video it was listing to the right before it rolled of the left.

    Did you notice the people on the boat? The guy on the front was tossed over board.
    Looks like they dropped the trailer off of the blacktop.
