Now that is funny, and let me add a story of something similar.

We used to yacht our 23ft fishing boat (ski boat we used to call it) off the beach in Port Elizabeth. Well one Sunday we show up and there is a Toyota pickup in the water stuck in the sand still with the trailer attached, the owner had decided fishing or save the pickup and fishing won. Well when we returned from our fishing trip some 6 hours later all that was sticking out of the water was the roof of said yellow pickup. Now Kings beach is a beach where people swim and suntan so you can imagine how many folks we hanging around looking laughing and pointing.

I must say that I have never seen anyone attempt to launch a boat off the slip nose first like that. Not sure which icon is correct in this instance, but my sides are hurting right now from busting a gut laughing.
