As anyone who’s spent any time around launch ramps knows, one can see some pretty amazing sights as people attempt to launch and retrieve their boats. Often, poor judgment makes boat-launchers their own worst enemy, though sometimes things just go wrong. It could happen to any of us — though we’re sure glad when it doesn’t. I’ve compiled 10 compelling, short videos here — some the stuff nightmares are made of, but others more a hoot and less a disaster. (Either way, I tried to avoid particularly mean-spirited boat-launch-fail videos that label the afflicted as morons or use similarly uncharitable terms.) Enjoy (yes, you may hear a couple of naughty words, so consider yourself forewarned).
How many vehicles does it take to launch a boat? In this case, quite a few — an SUV, two trucks and two tractors.
