I guess after bad weekend fishing during the Virginia Beach tuna tournament not catching a single tuna. Some people had it even worst off than us.

37' 2010 Contender

Check out this Contender that "ran aground". Boat was only 6 hours old.

Operator claimed he was doing 28 knots. Both people on board were 100%

sober. Cost him $10,000 to have Tow Boat US pull him back to the water.

4 tow lines parted in the process. MSRP on the boat ranges from $300,000 to

$400,000 depending on options."

Buying a boat requires no common sense, brains, boating knowledge..........just money. Maybe he figured for that money it should drive him home too!!!!

300k+ for a boat means 10k is spit. To bad money can't buy brains.

think he was fishing for plovers? lol. there is no reason for the stupidity. should have been fined, what if it were a public beach and he mowed down a pet or worse yet a family member. there should be consequences to pay for such idiocy.
