The 3 guys moving around the transom couldn't have helped with the balancing act. 3 guys at 180 each is 540 lbs of moving weight. Watching the video I expected the truck was going to topple over with the boom extension so far out with all that weight.

What a bunch of tools.

"Hey Verne, just had the trawler delivered. Let's get gumby's truck and unload it.

Shall we ride the rig into the water? Let's wander around like curious cats while Jessie lowers us down."

Freakin' dolts. I mean seriously, you have to have the mental intellect of Vinny Schtuman and Sargent Mahoney

What kind of sling is that? Both straps are mounted on the same axis.
