We came back from Cedar Point today and pulled the boat out of the Clinton River launch. Christine looks back at me and says "Hey you need to reconnect the lights" to which I think "Why would I need to do that, I never disconnect them?" Well some d!*#wad stole the 8-way round to 4-way flat adapter from between my truck plug and trailer wiring. What the hell? I know boating is expensive, but christ, can't people buy a cheap little item like that? I only had to trailer it a few miles, but still got honked at for not having lights. I had another at the house, so maybe I'll stick an exacto blade to the underside of it before I put it on, that way there will be a trail...

I ALWAYS worry about my connector and hitch and all that stuff. Brother, in this day and age, if it ain't bolted down (and sometimes even if it is) then fuggetaboutit! Grown men (or women, who knows) acting like children. Grabbing whatever the hell they want from other people's things??? Some people just need an a$$ whoopin! Amazingly, though no one ever catches these idiots in the act; you never hear about that!

Sorry to hear about that. And like you said, it's not a money thing, it's just the frustration of someone that assinine doing that for a cheap plug.

Thats why I always keep a lock on my trailer and when I needed that some adapter that you had, when parked, I would lock that in the truck too. That is just too sad Bill.

It kinda amazes what people these days will do or take.
The guy that installed my carpet in my house took the returnables I had in my garage the other day. He didn't say a word or anything. I'm assuming it was him because he was the only one there and the cans were there prior. I was going to mention something to him. I'll just deduct it off of what I owe him for the installation and see what he says.

Sounds like a big @$$-hole to me, Bill!
WTF is wrong with people? If they see it in your vehicle they'll probably bust out the window to get it...Keep stuff out of site to not tempt the guilty I guess

Yeah, now it's just another thing to lock up before I leave the truck. I'm glad I had a hitch lock on or who knows what I might have been missing...

I never gave thought to someone stealing my harness adapter. Guess that is more more thing to lock up.

Question, if I am told to go first and pull in ramp 9, then should the person after me told to take ramp pass me and pull across lanes 10-11 and partly across lane 9 with his 19 footer? Then impatiently keep backing up while I try to get my 32 footer backed in while he blocks part of my lane???? I don't even know what to say to people like this any more.

Those J***A$$es are the reason why I went to rack storage. When I decide to trailer my boat and bring it back, I have the Marina's launch that is 10 times better and is almost never being used.

Bill! No Way !
You know it was a punk who did it.........
had to be, no respectable human would steal, especially items that could cause unsafe operation (NO LIGHTS AT NIGHT!) man, that stinks, kinda makes you wish they had camera surveilence there doesn't it.
so you could review the tapes. Find the jackass, confront him, embarass him in front of his woman, friends, family.....

Sorry dude ! what a way to make a great weekend a little sour at the end.
