Boat Trailer Instruction

In anticipation of the expected override of Governor Easley's veto of the wide boat bill by a returning Legislature we offer these training videos to help drivers get up to speed, so to speak. Please note that, contrary to marine folklore, drinking on or around a boat does actually contribute to blood alcohol level while driving a vehicle towing the same or another boat. Here we see a perspective, from the side of a vehicular way, of vehicles with boat trailers:

Here are the same driving conditions from the perspective of a driver within the vehicular way.  Please note that even safe drivers who manage to keep their fish-tailing boat trailers within the lines marked on either side of the road must be vigilant to avoid other boats, drivers and similar debris.  If you are dehydrated and must have a beverage please let a passenger open it for you.

If you happen notice through the trail of dust behind your vehicle that a State Trooper has been flashing lights for several miles please be sure to have ready proof of citizenship and documentation for the pistol under your seat.  This is a good time to inspect your boat for damage from other vehicles.  Yellow school bus paint can easily be removed with 190 proof Everclear grain alcohol.

Please drive carefully.  Our roads and highways are filled with legislators racing with reckless abandon to Raleigh to override the Governor's veto.  In the event of an accident you are on your own as we have so many other important things to worry about.  Another good reason to save your beverages for a true emergency.
