    Now that is a thing of engineering and hands on beauty - never seen the "slingshot" method before!

    I do wish there were better pictures of the boat itself. It looks beautiful.

    That looks like a very good way to get killified, deader than dead if that thing had a hiccup.....all those guys standing and crouching underneath it as they're pushing it out. Beautiful boat nonetheless.
