You will need Facebook registration to view this. I know a lot of you are not on FB, just pass it up. But anybody who is on FB should give it a try.

Thanks Mark. I tried to find a non-FB video, and failed.

Thanks for bringing this up, Kelly. Looks interesting. At first look, I can only question what happens when a beach is steeper than the ones in the video.

Here's some information about Iguana Yachts--In France

Good point, we do have some steep ramps in Arizona. On the other hand, you might not need a ramp. Those treads may also work on a rocky beach. Not that it is anything I would take seriously, too much of a performance hit.

Hey, I should have guessed it was French, huh? rofl

At least you won't back your tow vehicle into the water on the ramp...

How about - this tow vehicle will float and return to the dock under its own power?

Yup, the ultimate ramp party. I have seen this at Arizona ramps. A boat full of guests in party mode. On the ramp. Little to no effort at getting the boat ready for anything.
