    Great pics! When I was a kid growing up in Florida, I watched that happen to a Corvair while fishing next to a dock one day. My buddies and I thought it was pretty hilarious. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    If the person on the jetski had half a brain they would have pushed the corvette back on land... You'd be amazed at how powerful they are.

    that really does suck... so much for the interior. thankfully it didnt fly off a cliff or anything, so the body is prolly a-ok. Why on earth they thought unloading waterborn vehicles from a corvette was a good idea I do not know.

    just out of curiosity, how much do those bigger jetskis weight? cant 2 adults manhandle them around? seems like a lot of peeps are lazy about launching those...

    They way a decent amount, I doubt you would want to try to pick one up with 2 people. We have a 3 seater and it's about 600 pounds... We have launched one with our riding lawn more, I have no idea what these people were doing wrong... Guess they just hit the gas!!

    600 lbs eh? pretty heavy... of course it is a 3 seater too. damn, didnt even know they made them that big. Anything that holds more than 2 I call a "boat". /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif any1 know how much smaller 1-person ones weigh? just doesnt seem like a small engine + some fiberglass should be so heavy...

    just a thought,but...salt water will total a vehicle out instantly.that would be a good way to get rid of a vehicle you didnt feel like paying off.i actually watched that happen to an iroc in 1990,but he was hooked to a 21'proline. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Yet,
    more proof that people with money, are just begging to get rid of it in a hurry.

    If you think about it,
    The driver sits about a foot and a half forward of the rear axle, and pretty dawg-awn low.
    What - could possibly make this guy think he could back it in further, when he was just about eye-level with the water - way (WAY!) before the rear end lost traction (floated).

    Ya think the waves crashing up on the driver's window would hint him off ?

    What a fawking idiot !

    yep,you would think so.the iroc didnt give up without a fight,it went down burning rubber and gurgling.one guy even ran down the ramp and jumped on the hatch to try to add traction w/his weight.he went swimming... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
