These boat repairs were done by a ‘professional.’ You won’t believe what he did (and didn’t do)!
We’ve highlighted a wide range of morons over the last little while here at Wide Open Spaces, from the guy who thought it’d be cool to wrestle an 11-point buck to the fella who figured he’d get his kicks from dressing up in a T-Rex costume to play paddy-cake with a full grown alligator.
May’s submission, however, may just take the cake for not only moron of the month, but quite possibly the entire year! What you’re about to witness may be the shoddiest boat repair of all time, which is scary because it was supposedly done by a ‘professional.’
George Pearn, from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, needed some work done on his boat. After going through due diligence by meeting the repair shop owner and seeing photos of his previous jobs—and ultimately wanting to support a local business—a price of $4,000 (CND) was agreed upon. Things unfortunately went downhill from there.
Pearn posted the following video to his Facebook page on May 24. Within a day it had over half-a-million views. As you can imagine, folks are gob smacked that a boat could be returned to its owner in this sort of state.
Spoiler Alert: Enjoy the 3 minute mark, because really, who doesn’t want a pair of deck screws clean through the bow of their boat?!
Have you managed to pick your jaw up off the floor yet? Unbelievable, right? And those deck screws? WOW!
Buyer beware is the caveat these days, but in the case of Pearn, he followed all the right steps and still ended up getting screwed (no pun intended!) But judging by the way this video is trending, we’re fairly certain this unhappy boat owner may just get the last laugh.
