ok, thank you for your quick reply. I will try to approach the image owner.

We know now where the accident happened. It was near Söderköping / E Sweden.

Hey Knottyboyz, That "thing" is known in our part of the world as a "Ski Flea". I inherited one on a set of pontoons that I acuired along with a two inch sapling and a hornets nest. I got the pontoons for free as a barge but had to take the included junk. Mark, Georgian Bay

If you compare the seating on the deck just below the helipad, the size of the 'copter couldn't even be big enough to fit one person...

You are picturing one of my worst trailer-boating fears.

There is something wrong with these pics other than the obvious tow car underwater. Who tries to launch the boat with the mast and rigging not set up and the trailer straps still on?

Very good also he tied the boat to the jetty and got his mate to try to pull him out with the trailer straps still on.

There is no shortage of these type boat launching car and trailer incidents. The make the newspapers all the time. Beside gross stupidity by thinking a "safety/parking" brake will hold the vehicle, there is sea grass and slime on the boat ramp that zero's out the tire traction and the boat and trailer slide back down the ramp.

Forgetting the handbrake is one thing, driving straight from home to the ramp without even preparing the boat and trailer for launching requires another level of ignorance.
