Not a Good Day at the Boat Launch.

Someone ordered a very expensive boat and was having it put in the water for the first time. Check out the guy on the stern as she goes down. No one seriously hurt.

Re: Not a Good Day at the Boat Launch.

Look at all the money he saved in farkles.. at least on this one.

As for the work being done, do you think he got his money's worth?

Ouch! What was anyone doing on the vessel while it is being put in the water?
Not a good idea.

Well, at least the crew hired to place the boat in the water threw a couple of life rings to their clients!
