We bought a boat berthed at Smith Mountain Lake and needed it moved to Lake Anna. We weren't at the lake and didn't get a trailer. Jon picked up the boat (I think - I haven't been to the boat shop yet) and brought it to a marina 70 miles away from where I originally told him it was going. When he arrived, despite having spoken to my contact at the boat shop at 9:30 to tell him it would be there within the hour, no one had a clue what he was talking about when he arrived. Jon put the boat in the water and left. I called the boat shop and was told the "owner and head mechanic" who expected the boat had left before it arrived. At the end of the day, all's well that (I am hopeful!) ends well.
