    This is how not to tow your boat this summer, according to the Abbotsford, B.C. police.

    A driver pulling a large sailboat on a homemade trailer was slapped with $2,071 in fines after police discovered in a traffic stop Sunday that the vessel was balanced on wooden pallets and secured with straps held together with duct tape. The trailer had no brakes and was fashioned with a homemade third axle.

    Police towed the SUV, the trailer and the boat.

    Mangat was also incredulous last week when he busted a driver in a sedan that was heavily weighed down by logs and branches. The load had been tied down with an “old garden hose,” according to Mangat. The hose was tied around the driver’s side mirror.

    Balanced on pallets, straps held together with duct tape, no brakes, homemade third axle. Just a few of the many things wrong here
