Boat Launch vs. Book Launch

Here's a clip of a friend's Young Brothers 38 descending the ways a few springs ago.

Blocks and wedged removed, crowbars to get the wheels moving, and a quick run to catch the boat at the other end. 
It's an exciting launching method. You have to keep your fingers out of the way. Do not try this at home.
Turns out that a book launch is pretty similar — a bit of crowbar work, a dash, a scramble, and then... it's afloat.
