If I read that right the guy was towing a jetski with a vette? Why the hell would you do something like that? At least its a new one so it can be replaced, I would have hated to see a classic get that.

ive worked on cars that have been partially submerged . . . man it sucks. The smell is amazingly foul and ironing the electrical bugs can be mind shattering.

Yow, that's a horrible sight. Of course, the guy was a dumbass for using a vette to tow a jetski, but even so.

That big iron engine sho' do sink fast, don't it?

There's a reason most boat owners have an old, expendable tow car for the ramps...

A little off the subject (and it was a good picture), what the hell did the guy mean when he said he was trying to chase some dolphin for dinner and caught a few? Some euphemism I am not aware of?

I think he means mahimahi or dorado. First time I was in Florida my friends said the same thing. We were going to go fishing for dolphin. I immediately thought flipper? But they did mean a fish.

I've seen a guy do the same with a late 70s Cadillac. Towing a small boston whaler and just backed the trailer and the car right off the ramp. Same thing happened too. Nobody offered to help because everyone was scared of the liability. I was unhooked and had my tow strap but I wasn't going to take responsibility if he tied off in a bad spot and I damaged something.

Never heard of a Dorado being called a dolphin. Must be a florida thing. Sucks about the car, but gheez, what kind of moron tows a boat with a vette anyway? Next thing ya know, someones gonna back their yacht in with an NSX or something

I can't believe no one helped him out ... it was as easy as throwing him a rope....he was already in the water, he'd snap it to his vette (no liability), and if the engine was shut down before the sinking, he could have had it running again. Most likely with a special "marine" perfume....but still...

i was thinking about that, does Florida have some sort of "good samaritan" law? A Lot of states have laws to protect those trying to help even if it doesn't work out, this way they can still help those in need instead of standing around playing with their navels while it sinks.

what i want to know is why a guy with the money for a nice vette and jetskies cant dish out a few bucks and at least rent himself a truck to tow his jetskies to the lake. that makes no sense to me.

how funny would it be seeing a vette towing a trailer down the freeway. thats just asking to be laughed at.

i just want to know what kind of moron can come to the conclusion that towing anything with a vette is a smart idea. i could see a couple of his friends saying "man why didnt you just buy a truck. a vette just isnt for you." or as he's leaving "dude, that just looks retarded. just open the wallet and spend a few bucks and rent a truck."
