I don't care about video of this, unless it goes south in biblical proportions. I just want to hear the conversation between you and your homeowners ins agent.

I bet, if the pool is 4" from the top (Taking into consideration the skimmer is blocked off), you set that boat in the pool, the water won't go over the top edge.
I bet that boat might displace a ton?

I haven't seen it mentioned, what are the actual dimensions of the pool?

Displacement is different than actual weight, is it not?

No, it's exactly the same. How else would the physics work?

Anything that floats will displace a volume of water whose total weight is equal to the overall weight of the thing itself. Something that floats will have a total volume that is lighter than the same volume of water. That is why you can have large vessels made out of things like steel or ferro-cement, they are mostly hollow and thus their *total* volume relative to their weight is much less than the weight of the same volume of water.

Google "Archimedes' principle".

Owner: Ummmm, no, it's in my pool at my house.

Better question.
OP went from a SeaChaser to a FREEMAN 33 to a Contender 35ST.
What's up with that?

Don't listen to all the Negative Nancys... You've got this. You would gain immortal status on THT if you pulled it off.

Just make sure you video in 4k and post it here.

don’t listen to them. You don’t need a crane. Mini excavator. Couple tie down straps.

Please hire professional photographer for video and photos.

Thread title certainly delivers...but what the hell. I love it.

Have fun, sounds like an epic party.

This sounds exactly like something my best friend would do, and he is the farthest thing from a show off that you can possibly imagine. Just likes to have fun and do stupid crap to make his friends laugh and cut up, most of the time at his expense.

Sounds like you are that guy...not necessarily a bad thing.
