That's actually very ingenious, ballsie for sure, but reminds me of the engineering projects presented to us for solving in college.

It takes a clear grasp of physics, basic trigonometry and some huge cojones. Just think what would happen if one of those water bags ruptured while under the bridge.

EDIT: It's such an incredible stunt cam - I don't think you'd mind if I repost those photos here.

I did that with dinghies for fun, but see no problem with doing it with a larger boat.

I wouldn't do it on my boat, tough...not because of the the cap size, but because of the fact my mast is fractional, and mast top loads are not directly counteracted by the shrouds, as these are lower than the mast top.

This photo can be dangerous in the hands of idiotic people...I'm sure some guy will try this at home!!!

Definitely the boating play of the week.

You've got to wonder what he does to anchor...stand at the bow and unzip?

I'm still trying to figure out how he got the weights out over the side far enough to get a fulcrum going to winch the boat down...

Labatt all he has to do is motor in a circle to port and the balls will fly to starbord, then slowly correct course.
