How not to tow your boat

An Abbotsford police officer found a driver using pallets and duct tape to secure a towed boat on Sunday.

Const. Harv Mangat slammed the driver with more than $2,000 in fines.

“Pallets are not a good way to balance a boat on a trailer held together with duct tape,” Mangat tweeted.

Photos show straps held together with duct tape, and the trailer had no brakes and a homemade third axle.

“Just a few of the many things wrong here,” he said.

A specialist company was called to assist with towing the dodgy load because it was too unsafe to dismantle roadside.
