    Omg, that would be so embarrasing. I wish the video showed how it happened. At first blush, that boat ramp looks a little steep.

    It is a long, steep boat ramp. I've been out there and have watched teenagers install a wooden jump ramp at the end. They build up a lot of speed on their bikes and jump into the lake doing flips and other such stunts. A guy from the towing service called the local radio this morning and said the owner just bought the boat and it was his first time to put it in the water.

    I have seen that happen in person more than once.

    Stick around a busy ramp on labor day or memorial day weekend. Grab a case of beer and some breakfast tacos. Comedy gold.

    The shorter the trailer, the harder it is to back down so the jet ski crowd are the worst. Even better, when they try and put the boat back on with a stiff crosswind.

    I have backed a lot of boats in to the water and never saw that happen. But it was a Chevy...

    Gold would have been Wife or GF there screaming about it.
