Now the real question is, is the boat being towed like that? Or just chilling in the road? :think:

The boat is not attached to the car. It is on a chassis of it's own.

Following Distance - Allow one boat hull length for every 10 knots. Isn't that the rule?

I was driving so I didn't get pics, but yesterday- in the same area- I saw a Suburban cut down Astromino style, Something else similarly cut (couldn't get a good look), and a minivan in a shop's parking lot with the entire upper half removed.
