I had to a do a talk this AM in downtown Seattle. I was driving down I5, and a rig towing a boat pulled up beside me, and pulled ahead of me. I was sort of dreading doing the talk thinking how much more fun it might be to be out fishing or something else non-work related. So I was staring at the back of this 20-ish foot boat a whole bunch. On first impressions it wasn't the prettiest thing but you could definitely fish off it. As I looked closer there was a new-ish 100 + horse outboard on it. The clear cover up top looked brand new and the only reason the boat looked sorta crappy on first impression was that below the waterline had been painted in a rust color that was sloppily applied. If it was on the water, it would probably be a pretty neat nice looking thing. Frankly I was jealous these guys were probably going out for a fish and I was going off to do work. Those were my thoughts as I moved over into the exit lane at the Convention Center, now two lanes away from the boat. As I did a white Uhaul or rental van, travelling way faster than traffic, travelling directly behind the boat, slammed on the brakes and slid. You could see in no way would the brakes prevent the impact. One of those mesmerizing slow mo moments that you can't help but watch. The Uhaul crashed straight into the back of this nice boat, right into that newish 100 horse outboard, the trailer bucked, the towing rig didn't do much. Probably a 15 mph impact into a near stationary boat and rig. There were lots of shattering noises. Ouch. If you're the guys with the boat I saw it all, if you need a witness or something. You have my sympathies, in less than two seconds your day was probably ruined. It didn't look like anyone got hurt, fortunately, but man what a crappy day for y'all. It is super depressing to hear a truck smash directly into some dude's boat, I hope the guy has insurance.
