These Guys got caught.

Just thought I should share this but unsure as to where. I took this video on a recent trip to Broome. The guy had only just bought the boat and first attempt to launch it. Has a not so surprising ending

Seriously what idiots!

Oh look here's a rain squall, lets launch off the beach. That car is stuffed now long term too.

Could have been a lot worse too.

While assisting with the reloading onto the trailer. I said to the guy I was surprised by how far you put the car in. His reply was "I look after my car, I'll give it a hose off when I get it home." He also said he didn't want to put it in here but his mate talked him into it. Foolish yes, he really was distraught, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him.
I was amazed at the launching, I had put the camera Back in the car when I realized the boat was about to sink. I grabbed the camera but just missed out on the sinking.
If ever you're bored, just head down to your local boat ramp, unbelievable.

It's a wonder they didn't finish it off by jerking the boat out with a snatch strap.

Mind you, we saw them lining up along the beach at Barn Hill to launch like that. Saw a few boats half full of water as well. Seems like the sun gets to their brains over there :oops: although they were actually tourists from who knows where.
