Authorities in Wisconsin are reminding residents to dispose of unwanted boats properly after a vessel was abandoned on a highway with “free” painted on the side.

The Wisconsin State Patrol said in a Facebook post that troopers responded to a call for service in Washington County and discovered someone had abandoned a boat on Highway 33.

The boat had “free” painted on the side.

“Disclaimer — this is not the proper method for disposing a boat,” the post said.

The post said troopers are frequently confronted with baffling sights while patrolling highways.

“We cover thousands of road miles every year, running across a variety of unusual things alongside the roadway,” the WSP said.
