Are you prepared if boat and lull end up in the water and pool is destroyed? Insurance isn’t likely to cover any of the mess. There is also the risk to yourself.

It is a cool idea. But I suggest you do something else, like rig it so people can jump off boat into the pool from the bow or something else like walking the plank.

If you need someone there to help document the occasion let me know. I’d go buy a drone just for this.

Well if it fits.... and it looks like you will only lose about 1,500 gallons, give or take depending on boat weight, of water by displacement. I would say to ease it into the water slowly so you don't get a dam burst effect by releasing that much water over the side of the pool too fast. You might be better off taking out 1,500 gallons of water over 24-48 hours before you put the boat in.

Pics!

.......that’s pretty funny....my experience has been insurance companies can be somewhat forgiving when speaking to an underwriter about a loss that occurred beyond an insureds control....

...but if someone ....chooses..... to do something pretty far out there.....who knows what they might come up w/ next ......companies might pass on making an offer of insurance to insure the boat upon renewal when details of a prior loss are discussed....

I’d say go for it!!!

I’d like to see the YouTube FAIL ...it would be more funny than cool to see the lifting equipment fold and lay right over into the house slinging the boat as it does......what’s that show?....America’s Funniest Home Video’s....maybe you might win 10,000 dollars and you could put it towards your deductible?....maybe you should ride in the boat while they lift it wearing a captains hat while they place it in your tub!....LOL

It would be pretty funny because it was a choice to do something w/ no real reason or need other than to show off your new Toy....that ended up as a FAIL

You might become .....THAT guy...

...then...I’d like to see the boat, home and crane adjusters get together for a beer ,all scratching their heads wondering what this guy was thinking....LOL

Why not just drag it around behind the pool and hire some topless dancers to wear captains hats and serve cold beers to your buddies as they get on board the boat to look all around....sure you’d be more fondly remembered for that from the guys over just seeing a boat in a tub they can’t get on....LOL

Well, I could say this is really stupid, more money than sense, etc. but I wanna see this epic humble brag crash and burn. Just make sure you take alot of pics and videos, contact Qualified Captain and see if they might send someone out to document this endeavor.

Personally I would crane it and have extra capacity, but I bet you know your equipment very well. Can I get an envite to the party?

First read was, why not!
then I was like, that would suck for the party cause can see women in pool!
Slowly moved on to how much could go wrong.

Now I am just thinking what an a-hole move and hope when it goes south there is video, because I will be entertained at your cluster fu'k.
