Hilarious Boating Fails
Boating is not as easy as it looks. It takes a lot of work to get a boat to the water, then into the water and then to stay on top of the water.
Not everyone can master these tasks, let alone jump off of a boat with ease (as pictured).
And we have some hilarious boating fails to prove it.
