Don't forget the tie downs
Fairly common error on a boat ramp when people don't get ready in the parking lot before trying to launch. But I've never had anyone actually do it in front of me when I'm standing in full view with a video camera recording them! Get a hint guys -- take a class!
Interesting things you will witness when hanging out at your local boat ramp.

Impressionnant amarrage de Blind Date à Saint-Tropez
Blind Date entre dans le port de Saint-Tropez et s'insère, non sans difficultés, entre deux yachts. Une manoeuvre très impressionnante. On peut entendre le "crissement" des bouées entre les bateaux à partir de 9min45sec. Lors du lancé des cordages, une observatrice se retrouvera parterre vers 12min32sec. Filmé le 27/07/2010.

Now that is the way to wash your truck. The rear of these duallys will float with nothing in the bed to hold them down. When the wheels came off the ground in the back and he did not hit the brake to stop the front wheels away it went in the lake. I missed it going in but got to see it come out. Lucky for the guy the trailer jack knifed and made it stop before going deeper.
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @ 69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
People having trouble at the boat ramp
This was too good to pass up! you can spot people who will have trouble a mile away. They people are coming into the ramp WAY too fast and almost collide with another boat.
Slash 4x4 Water Action
To answer some of the questions in the comments:
***The Traxxas Slash is waterproof***
1) This was taken at Pipal Park in Omaha, Nebraska.
2) I am driving my Traxxas Slash VXL 4x4 1/10 scale short course truck.
3) This is a water fountain that had recently been shut off for winter. Not a public urinal.
4) No, this is not a real truck.
5) Yes it is battery powered. At the time I was running 8.4 volt NiMh battery but have since changed to a 7.4 volt LiPo which can be seen in my later videos.
