    Ok, this is probably reasonably safe for 1/4 mile from storage to the boat ramp, but I wouldn't want to be in a vehicle that's moving down a slippery boat ramp with that big boat behind me.

    I use my Jeep to move my much smaller boat around the yard but I would never even think about attempting to use it to drag the boat to the lake let alone launch with it.
    I wont even say that takes balls just blissfull stupidity. I wonder how the rig did on the road in the video you csn hear a good amount of wind noise.

    Maybe he has 4:56 gears and 500lbs of lead in the rear seat to keep the jeep from floating away.

    That is crazy! Our 19.5ft boat with a cuddy cabin weighs around 3,500 lbs dry. That thing will pull my Yukon xl towards the shoulder of the road pretty good if I catch the shoulder with the trailer. I could not imagine what would happen with that jeep

    Notice the wheel spin when starting to come up out of the water? For about 1/10th of a second, I thought he was going to lose the whole thing in the drink.
