How Not To Launch a Boat

Saw this photo and thought of all of you who need to know these minor details.

The photo shows a fellow who drove the wrong way down a ramp into the water truck first with the boat trailer following.

Re: How Not To Launch a Boat

I've seen that one a few times; I got sent one copy with an Obama 2008 sticker photoshopped onto the back window (everything is political to some people).

When I first saw it, I held onto the hope that the parking brake simply failed and the truck rolled into the water. That hope dies a little bit more with every person I meet.
