Re: Not the way I wanted to get my hands on a Diamondback

When im pulling my boat down I-4, the people are looking at the boat and not paying attention to the road, its like they never saw one!
I'm always having to watch out for other drivers... hope everyone is ok.. looked like the boat was a work boat for spraying weeds, if im right.
