    The farther up the Gulf of Maine/Bay of Fundy you go, the more extreme the difference between low and high tides. Often 20 feet or more, depending on location. It is not unusual for some tourist to drive out to go clamming, and their car gets stuck and is flooded with sea water.

    This is just 1 example of how to get paid back from the insurance company.

    I am the exact opposite.
    For example, he’s screwed!😳

    Driving cars on the beach at low tide is never good idea! Imagine the panic as the tide rolls in with every wave coming closer and that is you hopelessly stuck! The Ocean now lays claim to the car which I agree is toast!

    Would have made a great commercial if he had drove it out!😄

    You can't hook up a strap and then "gun it" like this person did. Gonna snap every time, especially at that length of a strap.

    This Bronco Has Been Stuck on a Sandbar For Days


    Don't mess with the power of tides.

    The Ford Bronco is one of the most capable and desirable off-roaders on sale today. As such, we’ve all gotten to watch videos of these SUVs pulling off some incredible feats on the trails. That said, one Bronco driver out in Bar Harbor, Maine, learned the limits of their new 4x4 the hard way when it became lodged on a sandbar over the weekend. Unfortunately for them, that ill-advised parking spot has seen the truck drowned in several feet of deep Atlantic water.

    According to WDEA, the Bronco became stuck on the sandbar this past Saturday afternoon. The driver was reportedly doing donuts with the 4x4 before becoming unable to free themself. While simply getting stuck on a beach might not always be the worst case scenario, this particular owner seems to have missed the nearby warning signs that point out the dangerously high tides in the area. Perhaps that lack of local knowledge can be explained by the truck’s New Jersey plates. Either way, things became very expensive shortly thereafter.

    Regardless of how it was placed there, the Bronco could not be extricated before the deeper water returned from the sea. The incoming tides drowned the 4x4 up to the base of the windshield, which had to be an awful sight for the owner. The Bronco might be able to survive fording through 33.5-inches of water, but there isn’t a chance it will survive this ordeal. Attempts were once again made to rescue the SUV on Easter morning, though you can watch how that ended in the video. *Skip to about 1:30 to avoid watching basically the same drone video over and over and over.)
