I've been a boat owner for nearly two weeks and something bad has finally happened...

Some inconsiderate jacka$$ slammed into my new boatmate trailer today, then left the scene ...

Not that big of a deal, but when you get something new and you are really proud of how "perfect" the condition of everything is - it sucks.

I know there is nothing to be done, just wanted unload some before I accidently kill a roommate or stroke out.... hahaha... pics of boat / trailer soon :|

I hit a guys trailer one day leaving the marina. Broke his tailight. So I leave a note letting him know I'm the one who hit it and will pay for the damage with my cell #. He calls me up later that day and says he can't even hardly believe that I left a note, then proceeds to tell me not to worry about it, that he was planning on installing some new lights anyway, lol.

My trailer got hit one time, and the rear signal broke. I didn't notice until I saw a note under my windshield wiper. Some lady had hit it, but she left her contact info and everything. I called her back just to see what happened and said it was fine. I was working at West Marine that summer, and could get a great deal on a new taillight fixture, so thankfully it wasn't a big deal.

Props to people who are honorable enough to leave notes and own up :-)

I feel for you. I had the same thing happen last summer on our new boatmate trailer. The moron hooked my guide pole and bent the snot out of it. It happened at a DNR launch site so I had them call the local sheriff who promptly takes 1 hour to get to the scene and then proceeds to tell me that he can't even write up an official accident report because it's DNR/Township property. What the heck did we even wait around for??? Very frustrating to ride around with a brand new boat and trailer with a guide pole bent at a 30 degree angle backwards! Luckily it wasn't too expensive to replace. I got no note!!! SOME PEOPLE REALLY SUCK!

I so wouldn't have cared if they ahd left a note. Its a bad situation - but what do you do - accidents happen - but when you dont at least offer to pay or leave contact info - well, you're just scum...

jeff, that sucks - mine is not that bad, sorry to hear that happened to you though...

About a month ago, we were launching just after a bass tournament so the ramp was packed. My buddy who was parkig the trailer for me ran my boat trailer into someone else's. My trailer was OK but the other guy's trailer had it's taillight smashed in pretty good and our two trailers had kind of locked horns in the rear. We were lucky enough to have hit the guy who won 1st place and $2000 in the bass tourney. He didn't care a bit and even helped my friend unlock the trailers before I had the chance to get up there to handle the situation. I talked to him for a minute afterwards and he even gave us a beer.
