High water hopes dashed on highway
Although it was perfect weather for waterskiing, there was a distinct lack of water in the area for this boat to take a drive in.
Allan Kobillard got a surprise while driving down Burwood Rd on Friday when his boat slid off his trailer, landing in the middle of the road. Spectators stopped to see the unusual sight as traffic was directed around it.
Mr Kobillard said he was taking his boat in for repairs when the hook on the trailer holding it on snapped so now there might be a few extra repairs needed.
