Boat Show Flood

no better place to have a flood than a boat show... or maybe a fire/flood restoration trade show.

I'd bet the wake boarder that was riding when the tank failed had an interesting experience as well. Lucky there were no injuries.

I was talking to a buddy who now says correct craft and he said they had two boats sitting on the floor. When the tank busted it lifted both boats up and pushed them ten feet across the floor and into some trailers. Both boats had heavy damage and had to be removed. When I got up there Tuesday the floors were still wet. Because of the publicity they had record sales at the show.

They actually did a masterful job cleaning up the mess and having the boat show go off as planned. Kudo's to the staff that cleaned up the water, you really would not have known it happened if you didn't listen to the stories at the show.

Crazy . I wonder how long it took them to fill that thing!?

On a side note: I'm really impressed with the news coverage of this. If this would have happened in Portland our local news would have turned that story into a days worth of programming including 8 different reporters live from each exit of the Expo Center..... diagrams.....reenactments........interviews with the eye witnesses.....interviews with non-eyewitnesses.......interviews with the guy working at the concession stand.....etc. Oh, and don't forget the obligatory "How to Protect Your Family from Boat Show Wakeboarding Pool Failures" checklist.

Kudos to the news station for actually just reporting what happened. It's a lost art these days. :lol:
