its not boat related more just some extreme mechanical carnage...
Not my post just a cross post from another board..
"So this morning I was getting ready to go to work... I heard a booming noise - like a tailgate on a dump truck slamming. Didn't hear any trucks though. A little while later I heard an even bigger boom. Not a tailgate! On my way to work I saw two dump trucks. One on the side of the road, and one in the neighbors drive. I pulled in because I saw he had a flat tire and found one severely rattled trucker!
What happened was he just got done dumping, pulled forward, waited, then started to go again when the driver's side front tire blew out. He gets out to look at it, then goes over to the passenger side to inspect. He looks it over (standing in front of it) then starts to walk back around the front when it went... BIG!!! The rim and drum blew off the trruck and into a Dodge Dakota about 15' away!!! He was about 1.5 seconds away from death!"
