    Photoshopped or something. It looks it was dropped from a helicopter or something.

    edit: what, was it on a crane or something?

    No, they just threw the ropes through some pulleys and hooked them up to a couple horses.

    they take cranes k2 and move them over the top of the water, and lower them into the water... because

    1 they dont make trailers for boats that big, and no car or truck would be able to pull it.

    2 you'd have to back it so far into the water that your car would be basically under water... and it wouldnt make sense....

    and itd be like impossible to pull it out of the water.!

    i agree its real...
