Florida man tows his boat

This is not how you should tow a boat.

Apparently one desperate driver in Pasco County couldn't be bothered with street-legal riggings and decided to strap his boat precariously to the back of his car using a few cords and a little dolly.

Kenneth Keegan captured video of the driver last Sunday, April 23, and posted it to Facebook. In the video (below), you can hear the boat scraping against the ground as it sways haphazardly in the wind, seemingly one speed bump away from crushing the hood of any car following too closely.

According to WPTV, the driver was not pulled over or ticketed, but the Pasco County Sheriff's Office says deputies could have written a couple of serious citations.

Since the video has gotten so much attention, Keegan has used it to try and raise awareness for a friend's heart transplant, which you can check out on his GoFundMe page.
