That guy at the port side stern was putting his hands on the swim platform like he was going to keep it upright. crazy

And the kids going "oh no" is priceless.

Just talked to one of my friends who has a place down there & uses that ramp. Story goes boat was just bought for $3.1 million & marina was pulling it to do some work. On 1st attempt they broke the trailer. Had trailer repaired & was attempting 2nd try. Truck cut the corner short & resulted in trailer being crooked. Rest is history.

That'll buff out. NOT! Not only are the insurance companies going to have fits, but OSHA will be all over that video with the two guys on board.


Anyone who thinks that kids don't emulate their parents needs to listen to the commentary in that video.

Would imagine this one could get a little sticky.

I was thinking it was going to fall onto the ramp- at about 45 seconds in it starts leaning badly to starboard, guy in the truck say's 'it's leaning' - straighten's up finally about 1:10, only to roll off port side at the top of the hill.

The trailer tires looked to be near flat, if they'd had that boat about 15' farther onto the trailer a whole lotta boat weight would've been put on the truck axles, nearly all the weight was on those 2 axles (that should've been 4 or 5)...

Like I have a lot of room to talk... but mine hasn't fallen off the trailer yet! wink

The end loader is pulling the truck sideways while they make the turn. I bet the trailer wheels went off the road. Someone should have been watching and got them stopped.

That looked like a pretty soft roll onto a grassy hill, probably not damaging the boat very much. I saw somewhere that the boat is already back in the water.

"not damaging the boat very much". Not the boat perhaps, but what about the broken $1000 bottle of Scotch and fine crystal for drinking it from. grin

Scotch is more important. Boat is insured while the Scotch is not.

Remember the red 28' GFBL that sunk on our lake, and was drug in upside down to the launch ramp?

[Linked Image]

-----------------
They used this truck's winch to roll it back upright--

--just doing that cracked the glass a good 10 feet or more...


Now, take a 40,000# boat, roll in over onto it's side, soft grass or not, onto a wall of fiberglass that wasn't designed to hold up anything but a few cabinets-- what do you suppose the glass, those cabinets and pretty much everything else on the port side looks like now? -- I'm betting it's a freakin' mess...

From what I heard, it was back in the water three days later after buffing and prop repair. No idea what the inside looked like after leaning almost 90 degrees, but it could not have been pretty.
