Boat launch and car wash. Exterior and interior. What's not to love?

That first one is pretty wild. I could see tipping that sucker. Must have had some kind of large dollies underneath.

I'm not sure if it was a blessing or not, but I grew up in a family of boaters. I've launched boats down boat ramps many times and not once came close to losing a car or truck in the lake. We finally built a house on the water with a boat dock which helped reduce our stress levels.

After viewing these videos, it seems there has to be a better way to launch a boat, don't you think?

I'm amazed by how well late model pickups float!

Oh I don't know, it seems to work alright. I suspect a lot of the folks getting in trouble with it there might be beer involved.

Crack open the budweiser and suddenly nobody cares if it all goes into the water......


I still wonder what their insurance agents have to say about all of it......does insurance cover STUPIDITY?
