Boater is in dire need of a compass

Coming across abandoned vehicles on the side of the road is nothing unusual, but motorists in Wisconsin recently found something a bit more unusual.

According to the Wisconsin State Patrol, a boat with the word “free” painted on its side was recently left on State Highway 33 in Washington County.

“We cover thousands of road miles every year, running across a variety of unusual things alongside the roadway,” read a post on the Wisconsin State Patrol’s Facebook page on Tuesday.

As if they needed to be told, the State Patrol added a disclaimer reminding citizens that “the side of the road is not the correct way to get rid of a boat.”
