So gents, give this a read and tell me what you think...
What makes no sense here is how you get a small center console boat 20 miles offshore without noticing a full grown raccoon on board. Ive been on many CCs, everything from single engine 25 footers to monsters like the Hydrasport 65' and it'd be hard to miss a Racoon even on the 65'. Every owner I ever went out offshore with checked every inch of their boats over before pulling off the dock. Offshore small-craft boating is seriously fun but it's serious business and can go from fun to a fight for your life very quickly for those who don't take it so.
This guy in the video was "angry" and seemed to even take a little joy in what was likely the end of the animal's days. I get it, Raccoons are very dangerous animals and could be a big problem on a small craft. However there was lot's he could have done that by the video didn't look like he even considered. Could have sat still and called the CG or Sea Tow for some help among other things. That being said even if kicking it off boat was what he honestly felt to be his only option...how the hell did it get that far in the first place?
My theory is this was intentional. Perhaps he had a nuisance Raccoon, trapped it then took it off shore to dump it just to take gratification in the suffering of a dumb animal. Whatever actually happened, his stripes as a rank moron for the fact that he posted it on FB is quite telling and kinda says he'd be dumb and cruel enough to have set this up from the start.
