    Firemen Story....Amusing

    Virginia City's New Fire Boat Sinks
    Virginia Harbor City's Brand New Fire Boat Sinks Before Going On Its First Run

    NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Mar. 21, 2007
    (AP) The city's $385,000, state-of-the-art fire boat sank Wednesday, still tied up at a dock and without ever being put to use.

    The boat, moored at a marina by the James River Bridge, was discovered with its stern sitting on the river bottom and the bow sticking up out of the water. Investigators had not yet determined the cause of the sinking.

    The fire department had not even taken ownership of the 33-foot boat because it was waiting for the manufacturer, MetalCraft Marine of Canada, to finish installing electronic equipment, department spokeswoman Dana Perry said.

    Perry said the department has two other boats that can be used to fight fires on the water, but they don't have the capabilities or technology of the new vessel.

    Not the first

    people forget things like plugs, still strapped to the trailer also. Had a young fella drive his boat up on his trailer once, and right up into the pickup bed, stuck the bow right thru the back window. One of my favorite things to do on boat patrol was go sit at a boat launch and watch the fun. I could write a book about it. Hmmmmmmm
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

Had a young fella drive his boat up on his trailer once, and right up into the pickup bed, stuck the bow right thru the back window. He was just a bit heavy on the throttle.
