Seen that a few times at the lake.

Been awesome to see him get in and drive off.

agreed, the owner would have been cut in half if that line snapped.

The owner probably had an issue with the transmission, IE it came out of park. Something along those lines. I get nervous every time I launch my ski. My truck is a stick so I shut it off, leave it in first, and apply the e-brake. I should have a wheel chuck too.
