We had a huge storm tonight and lost a tree limb that smashed the truck and landed on the boat and tower. The company truck took it on the chin <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> the only damage to the boat was a small boat cover tear<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/smile.gif" border=0><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/347883.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/347884.jpg" alt="Upload">

I can feel for you since I had a close call myself on Saturday. A lady was at a garage sale across the street from my house but she parked on the other side of the street, I had pulled my boat out in front of my house loading it up to go to my lake house for the weekend and when she was leaving her flip flop got wedged in between the gas and the brake pedal while she was in reverse and narrowly missed my boat and truck went up on my neighbors lawn and bounced off of their house and wedged in between the house next to it.

The worst thing was with all wind and lightning we just got about a quart of water. Last fall our lake was lowered 5 feet for people to work on seawalls and docks. It still has not come up so the wake is still no wake!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0>

You didn't like that truck anyway, did you?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR>I think the truck jumped out in front of the branch to save the boat...stick a purple heart on it! <BR>Really, I am sorry for the truck, but would be sorrier if it had hurt the boat...

The best part was it was a work truck
