You're quite correct. I should say that one has to take care to open the cab windows
before launch, as otherwise the air trapped in the cab creates the dreaded "accidental pontoon" effect and the whole thing rolls over.
I pointed that out to the Perpetrators during the "interfering wife" phase of planning, and I feel sure they heed my advice before pointedly ignoring it....
All seriousness aside, this isn't mine. I only mentioned it by way of explaining my interest in metal strength.
It belongs to The Accomplice, and the pictured truck is the "spare" that he tows behind his- dare I say it here?- motorhome
That way he doesn't have to buy gas for a TV for the boat, or use the M/H for launching once at camp.
It works pretty well for that purpose. You should see it with the motorcycle rack on the back!
