Talking Jetski launching

I just saw these instructions on how to launch a jetski and thought they had to be shared. http://www.woodenboatfittings.com.au...-launching.jpg

What were they drinking and thinking ?

Hope we don't ensure them, looks like a non US location.

Looks like the driver may be a Darwin Award candidate. Insurance is a beautiful thing, it allows ignorant people the ability to recover from their stupidity.

Sometimes I wonder how some of these people even learn how to tie their shoes

Love it!

As a kayaker I have a deep rooted fear/hate of jetskis. It's just too bad these turkeys polluted the water more than usual by dumping the truck.

Might make for some good near-shore structure for us landlubbers, though. Anybody got waypoints?

Cool

As good as it gets! I've sat at the boat ramp here in downtown suberbia Kirkland, WA on summer evenings watching all the Micro Soft young guns unloading their jet skis hoping for a little of the same as the pics on the post showed. No luck yet but soon it's got to happen. Remember the Scott rod ad with the guy on the front of the flats boat hooking into a jet skier and the guide cheering him on?
Anyone got any pics of a snowmobiler being charged by a Bison in Yellowstone?
