You know what's awesome about boating?
Exactly the same thing that's awesome
about driving: You can totally mess shit up
behind the wheel of a big, powerful machine, which is what this great nation is really all about
Thing is, if you're going to be a total badass -- wearers of Affliction and TapouT T-shirts, heartbreaking panty droppers that you are -- you should probably do so in your own vehicle, not a rental.
Unfortunately for Carefree Boat Club of Fort Lauderdale, a local man might not have had this important bit of common sense.
Carefree claims that Noah Simon rented a boat for four hours on July 26.
He told Carefree's employees that "he was very experienced" with boats, according to Broward County Civil Court documents. He also used a coupon for the rental.
Before Simon's time was even up, the boat was so wrecked that it had to be towed to shore, Carfree claims in a recently filed lawsuit.
It's unclear how much the boat was worth, but four-stroke Yamaha outboards -- like the one Simon is said to have rented -- can cost around $20,000.
The Pulp contacted Simon and is waiting for his comment.
