Sea Tow - all at sea on dry land in 2010 ...

The Sea Tow driver was failing in his single-handed attempt to haul the boat back onto the trailer from whence it had slid onto the road when he accelerated the tow truck (south) down our street... possibly in search of a boat ramp.
I pointed out to him that one of the 'midship rollers was missing from the trailer and its axle was hanging up the boat while gouging the hull and suggested he remove a forward roller to replace the missing one – meanwhile, our neighbor loaned the jack (in pic. 5).

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 ?).

He was given clear and concise directions to the nearest boat ramp – i.e. turn round 180º to head north then, 1st left [west] and left [south] at the 3rd street into the park... and was seen again about an hour later towing the (same) boat south down our dead-end street... that has no boat ramp.

Rescue is what he does for a living?

I sent the photos, taken in front of our next door neighbor's house, to Boat U.S., Sea Tow and Mad Mariner ... the latter added it to their, 'Wreck Of The Day'.
