You're all wrong. It was a cruiser wake that caused everything.

WTF, that would sure piss me off. Was that a Tahoe or Escalade "hooked" to the pontoon? Sad to see he had to get help to pull the pontoon out. Weighing what maybe 3500# at most.

Ramp looked in perfect condition as well. Whole setup look doomed to fail

Pontoons are magnets for husky chicks, and Dodges are magnets for pontoons (as demonstrated here), ergo Dodges must be magnets for husky chicks.... Don't buy a pontoon.

If that would have been a Cummins instead of a gasser, the tow mirrors would have TOTALLY deflected that pontoon from hitting the truck bed.

I think they needed to pull it out faster...20 MPH is not enough.

Looks to me like a 2 wheel drive and obviously no tongue weight. We all know chevy motors are made out of tornadoes and power isn't a problem. ...
