A Sea Tow driver 'ran aground' in front of our house.

F
ailing in his attempt to haul the boat back onto the trailer, I pointed out that one of the 'midship rollers was missing and its axle was hanging up the boat while gouging the hull.

Suggested he remove a forward roller to replace the missing one meanwhile, the neighbor loaned the jack.

With our help, man-handling it onto the trailer (where should we send the bill?), the driver took off without, in my opinion, securing the boat (again) and, despite being given clear and concise directions to the nearest boat ramp (turn round to head north then 1st left and 3 streets west), he was seen again later towing the boat south down our dead-end street that has no boat ramp.

And rescue is what he does for a living!
