I doubt if he could buy a decent bass boat outfit for $5K.

If this dude expects sympathy from this crowd, he better look for it in the dictionary. He will find it between chit and syphilis.

So far there has been no mention of any insurance.
If he did not buy insurance for his boat, he may not have insurance for his car. I suspect he will also have to pay a fine for environmental damage too.
Maybe no medical or life insurance either.
I wonder if he had PFDs onboard.

Based upon what I have read here, this couple sounds like the poster kids for "Ill Prepared."

I wonder how the dog felt about this adventure.

Greetings,
"I wonder how the dog felt about this adventure." I suspect he/she/it found the whole exercise re-pug-nant.

Do you think pugs are to wolves as we are to Cro-Magnon's?

I have been tempted to start a go-fund me page, with the stated purpose to raise money, so I can buy more of the stuff I like to buy.

Being young and cute is worth a lot these days.

If you can take advantage of it, why not?

Nobody who can't afford it is sending money to these crowdfunding beggars. In a way, they're providing a valuable service, makes people feel good to think they're helping.

But only if you can tell a good story, with appealing photos.

It is hard to believe that people are stupid enough to gave these two money on a Go Fund Me site.
Next year I want to do the Trent Severn. Going to have to set up a go fund me page to get everyone else to pay my way.

+1! This is depressing. Reward the ignorant and/or ill prepared. Makes me wonder why I worked for a living all those years.

Believe me, lottery winnings like these are rare.

Actually setting out to earn a living on social media is just another flavour of making a go of it in show business. You are trying to make a living entertaining people.

Damn hard and under 1% actually get anything but memories out of years of trying.
