Tough Start for Young Couple

Postby RTB » Sat Jan 14, 2017 4:11 pm

These kids bought a boat here, spent quite a lot of time working on it, and left not long ago.

Anyone know which bridge this is?

OMG, what a terrible start! What about your captain, what did he have to say for himself? I heard you tell him the bridge wasn't open, and he claimed he could go through the middle. I think he has some explaining to do! I hope your insurance will cover at least most of the cost.

Gives me the heebee-jeebees just to think of those cracking and breaking noises. Very sad, but it could have been worse.

These poor kids seem to be attracted to.....not sure what. Maybe their boat IS jinxed?
