YouTube Star Drives His 8 Wheeled Monster Truck Into Sarasota Bay and Gulf

Just last Sunday, November 15th, 2020, YouTube personality WhistlinDiesel drove his monster truck into Sarasota Bay, and later into the Gulf of Mexico. In an 8 wheeled monster truck named “Monstermax”, Cody Detwiler drove down a public boat ramp into Sarasota Bay, under the bridge at Longboat Pass, and out into the Gulf of Mexico for a viral video that has over 4 million views so far.

This isn’t the first time a monster truck has driven on the water, or even on 8 wheels. In fact it has happened a bunch of times as far back as the early 80′s or early 70′s, when monster trucks were basically just Bigfoot.

But this is the first time I know of that it happened in our neck of the woods. And it almost didn’t happen. In Florida trucks, and I’m assuming most non-boat vehicles, can’t drive into the ocean (not a lawyer, don’t quote me on the law here). Thankfully this truck is registered as a boat in Indiana. And I guess that means it counts as a boat here too?

Anyways check out this video making our part of Florida look like fun. Or redneck hell, whichever way you want to look at it I guess.

And around the 9 minute mark he puts it on cruise control and hops on the roof which is what I would have done too, to be honest lol.
