Re: Just Drop Her In The Water!

Every time my boat is lifted I have nightmares. They just don't look natural dangling on couple of thin straps, but I cannot resist watching these videos

When we ordered our 2007 Leopard 46, it never made close to the water. They dropped it from a gantry at the factory onto the concrete!
