This Shoreline Boat Launch is Destined to Fail… Or is It?

When you see this boat launch begin, you’ll immediately think it’s all over, but wait until you see what happens next.

We’ve seen this type of crazed, mad-dog boat launch from the seashore before, but this one looks destined to fail right from the start. Don’t give up on these guys just yet, though, because these fearless men are just getting started!

Watch the nerve it takes to keep going when it looks like you should abandon ship.

Here’s the video:

When you hear the horn sound and see the straps come off, you know it’s on and there’s no turning back! Once the bow turned back towards shore, it should’ve been over, right?!

Wrong!

Many intrepid crews from the North Sea to the shores of Australia launch vessels from the shore and into harsh seas like this. You never once see any fear in this brave crew though; in fact they seem to know just exactly what to do. 

After waiting for the right wave, the skipper slammed it into gear and backed out! Maybe not the preferred method, but off they went. The captain was wise not to try and turn the vessel around until after clearing the surf.

Cheers to these guys for never giving up!
