How to load a pontoon boat on top of a truck

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYCyE...ature=youtu.be

Could not figure out why a guy would want to do this but then saw the Canadian Flag flying in the background so figured I would not spend a lot of time trying to apply logic to the situation.

The whole time I saw that I was thinking that's got to be a snowbird heading south for the winter. My assumption was confirmed when the diesel pusher was shown in the last few seconds. We get these kinds of setups out at the Colorado River all the time from about October to April.

Just a small breeze while loading the thing could be a disaster.

WOW!! Pulling that would make me completely paranoid and scared to death.

Let's just say you had to drive through ANY major city and heaven forbid change lanes 😰😰😰

Or drive across oklahoma or many other states and have a cross wind.. YIKES!!

Yikes! I saw the title and was expecting a boat ramp blooper- type incident, not something intentional! I would not want to be anywhere near that setup lol.
