Ooops

As seen in the Toronto area. Too tight of a squeeze, causes some significant damage....

Probably Eric as he has a bias against flying bridges. Would you call that a bridge to bridge contact. Channel 13 I presume.

I'm not a fan of flying bridges (and don't have one), but I've never been to Toronto.

I've always heard that it is a good idea to take off the flying bridge before doing a truck transport of a boat. But somehow I always thought it would be taken off a bit more gently .

Solution: let enough air out of the trailer tires to lower the boat enough get loose, then refill the tires after it's out and on the side of the road.

Um, let me see now. Paragraph 5(c): "Before transporting, the flying bridge will be removed by our highly trained technicians, using available equipment, and sent separately to the purchaser of our services by UPS. There may be several boxes."

With enough elbow grease, perhaps.....but buffing concrete is rather difficult!

Every good boater knows a "low bridge" tender must be reached for opening before going through - Duh!
