The parking brake has no effect on the front tires so I fail to see how that makes you come to the conclusion that his parking brake was on.

you can but these vids are examples of what happens

His front tires aren't moving because he is just spinning his tires and not going anywhere, he probably backed his back tires off the edge of the ramp

No, and anyways, how is water going to travel uphill through an exhaust 10+ feet long and compress all the air currently in the exhaust system, while going through bends and turns.

I always have my truck underwater when launching my jetski cause i launch it alone and it weighs a little too much to not park deeply.

This is why some people should not be aloud at the lake. These are the guys I'm waiting on to put my boat on the trailer at the end of a long day. It's hard to keep my mouth from getting me into trouble. LOL

I am the exact same way, though I have no problem with people that are slow because everyone had to start somewhere when learning how to launch a boat but people who do stupid **** like that would not go over well.

that is just an idiot driver, I bet there is a ledge on the bottom of the ramp, he drove his back tires over it in the first vid then he was d!cking around and then the jet ski trailer tires were on it in the second vid. All he would have to do it back up a bit so he could bump over it

don't think the ledge would be that shallow. And in the second vid it kinda looks like the brake lights are on or either running

Your not one of them thinkin types are you?

Ever heard of fluctuating water levels? I know its one of those big book words, but it means the water levels go up and down.
