"The fun part comes about when you trying to get your weight from your vehicle to a boat"
Few years ago on Santorini (Greece): A nice sandy beach. A big extended Greek family (abour 20 members, sounds like 100) came with a pickup truck and unloaded a big block of concreete, two empty oil barrels, some wood (2 by 4) and some rope. One member came with a power boat arount the corner. We had a laught of our life.
Whaching them constructing the raft was fun, waching how it turned over was more fun, ... Normally I would help, but they were soo full of theirself thet we all rather watched and smiled.
Among other they also tried to drag the block with the power boat, which resulted in one cleat less on the boat.
A few hours later, after lots of greek swearing, shouthing and a few almost divorces and kids crying the end result was:
Mooring block was left in two feet of water.
A power boat was ancored on her "tiny little unusable" anchor from the stern and moored with a line from stern to the block. We never saw them on that beach again.
