Florida Boat Copies Suez Canal Cargo Ship And Blocks Freeway Access

Many people wondered if the boat was jealous of the attention being given to the giant cargo ship wedged in Egypt’s Suez Canal.

A boat in Florida was apparently jealous of all the attention being given to that giant cargo ship wedged in Egypt’s Suez Canal.

On Thursday evening, the 38-foot-long pink-and-white boat somehow landed on Interstate 10 near Crestview, blocking traffic for hours, according to NWF Daily News.

The accident happened when a 64-year-old Pensacola man was hauling the boat west when the trailer started to sway and collided with a guardrail.

There were no injuries, according to a Facebook post from the Crestview Fire Department, which said the Florida Highway Patrol removed the boat.

Not surprisingly, many Twitter users couldn’t help but share their strong opinions about the incident, especially the way it paralleled the plight of the Ever Given in the Suez Canal.
