Dave, that's the exact scenario that will happen to me, except maybe the bus exploding there on the ramp to then slowly drag itself into the water, never to be seen again. Captain goes down with his ship.
JC,yes I have the same issue of a leaky rearend (the bus, not my prostrate) and figured on a full boat slip cover when traveling. It is a very nice antique boat.
Also thought of a front hitch on the bus. The older boat is under 2,000 lbs. I can do the 'Heman or Hulk' and pick it up, since it is really balanced kind of nice. Walking it into/out of the water....no, I'm not that strong. If I set the boat and reattached it from the front, then it would be very easy to guide it into the water. I'm not a fan of going in deep to put the boat into the water, so that would be a game time decision.
thanks for the fun discussion.
