High water hopes dashed on high­way

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

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.
