Here's a few pics of my mate launching his Jet-Ski ( sorry Gary I had to do this ).
After successfully launching the Ski, My mate gets on it and gives it a quick blast and then back to the jetty he goes to get his van off the ramp. What he didn't do properly was pull the hand brake fully on, so when he,s on the Ski the van is slowly going into the water.
Luckily for him the jet ski trailer kind of jackknifed preventing the van going further into the loch. Luckily for him -apart from his Ego, nothing else was damaged.

This weekend, I didn't have my camera, but saw for the first time, a boat on the launch ramp. It looked like a pretty good size cabin cruiser, and the guy made it half way up the ramp when the boat slid completely off the trailer and onto the concrete. We did here the crunch, and really don't know how this happened for sure, but everyone guessed he did not have his wench set properly, and it unwound and snapped once the got up speed sliding off the trailer. I couldn't even laugh, as I could not imagine how I would feel if that happened to me. This clogged up the launch ramp for a couple of hours since this was bloacking two lanes. It took a good size tow truck to lif the boat and get it back on the trailer. I know the guys outdrive was toast, and damge to the hull had to be pretty extensive. Like SODAR said earlier...simetimes it's better to do it alone and follow a procedure!

This happened 2 year ago. First time out with a new '08 X45. Getting ready to load the boat on the trailer. I'm driving the boat, my wife backs the trailer in the water. With our old FourWinns we had to put the trailer in pretty deep. Anyways, the trailer is in too deep (only 3 inches over the wheels). I'm coming and and go into reverse. As I backup, the trailer boat guide come off the metal and floats away. I put a 4 foot scratch down the side of our new boat. Took it to our dealer. they fixed it up and you cannot see the scratch. So I made it so the guides cannot come off.

I assume that the previous pictures showed the men in uniform scooping up all the floating donuts.
