What'll ya bet that van is up on Craigslist pretty quick - - "excellent condition, never abused, recently got thorough top-to-bottom cleaning."

This should be on Letterman's "Will it Float" segment.

Proving once again that some jetski operators are missing higher reasoning functions. The stupid f**k also ran over a duck with his ski while loading. What a jerk!

Re: How NOT to load a jet-ski into a Ford van - epic FAIL

That actually happens a lot. I've met 3 people who all did the same thing. The problem is that people put it in park and or set the e-brake and that only locks the rear tires. The rear tires are on the slimy underwater part of the ramp and nobody has their foot on the breaks engaging the front breaks.The best plan is to back down on the part of the ramp that has the most traffic so the slime is gone and have the driver or passenger hold the breaks.

Launching and loading my boat this weekend I had a thought for this video...
I had my 4x4 and just popped it into 4 and left it in gear as well as the park break...

I've seen dumb trailering procedures more than once.
