Bottom of the Bayliner

A sad day in this owners life today. Went to the marina and saw this. He removed an exhaust hose and left the boat overnight.

It's the second boat of his that's sunk in the marina.

A sad day and holiday for him.

Wow, second boat? I feel bad for him! Is he just unlucky? Or was he just a careless boater?

I think it's a lack of common sense in his case. Like Mr. McGoo kind of. A funny guy but does stupid things.

Ahh I figured you can't make the same mistake twice without having no common sense. Hey, third times a charm right?

He's the guy that buys abandoned boats and fixes them for sale. He's owned four boats at a time.
