Police near Vancouver, Canada, pulled over an SUV driver this week for towing a sailboat hanging dangerously on a ramshackle trailer that had been "customized" with wood pallets and duct tape.

The driver was fined the equivalent of about $1,500, which could buy a pretty decent and road legal trailer.

The bow of the vessel (named Solgangsvind, the name of a coastal wind in Norway) was supported by a post held in place with straps.

An Abbotsford police spokesperson said via Twitter that the contraption also had a homemade third axle and no brakes. and declared that it was an example of “how not to tow your boat this summer.”
