    Default Boat Launch Accident In Port Moody

    One of the best fails I've seen for a 'Solo Boat Launch'...

    Guy was on the news, he's OK...seems he used the vehicles 'Auto Hold' button instead of the parking brake.

    "Auto hold" is an option on some imported vehicles designed to keep a vehicle from rolling back when stopped on an incline.....also known as a dumb a** button. LOL No way is it designed to hold a vehicle on a sharp incline like a boat ramp when under load. That guy is a moron......lucky moron.

    And to add to the idiot mix, he actually runs a boat out on the water? That's scary!
