BIG BOAT little jeep
TEST Launching a 27' Bayliner cabin cruiser into lake. Boat is 7500 lbs
trailer is 2500 lbs total 10,000 lbs. First test launch, (just floated off
trailer and pulled back out) launched many times since. Only moved from
storage to ramp, about 1/4 mile. Brought it back home at end of season with
one ton truck.
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!
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.
