If you poke your way around the internet, there are hundreds of videos of boat ramp failures. While it might look like a place that is pretty easy and inviting for you to just roll on down and launch your boat into the bay, lake, or wherever you happen to be, it also ends up being an area where you can get really caught up in a lot of different things that you’re not paying attention to but will sneak up on you and make you look like an idiot pretty quickly. There’s nothing to be ashamed of because there’s really a lot going on but you may want to keep an eye out if you’re ever on a boat ramp because you never know when something ugly could unfold on you.
This time, however, it’s not exactly a boat ramp that we’re looking at. Instead, these folks show us that you don’t need a ramp at all in order launch your boat but instead, if you have the right equipment, you can just drop it off of the side of the body of water, rolling down the bank and plopping it right on in. It’s not something that we would recommend for anybody because our lawyers would kill us but if you watch something like this, it might provide a little bit of encouragement if you’re thinking about doing it anyway. In addition, you could skip the long line at the boat ramp!
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to watch this boat and truck combination as they make their way into a successful launch that will really have you thinking twice next time you put your own boat in the water. Personally, if this were me behind the wheel here I probably figure out some way to screw it up or get stuck, however, it looks like these folks have their stuff together as they launch the boat in successfully without a hitch!
