they acted as though it was absolutely amazing that the thing could float. I would guess that the trailer weighed in around 600 lbs. Anything, especially a whaler should be able to float that.

It's only amazing when you see people actually do it at the boat ramp. Ha!!

I saw that, too. Mythbusters is one of my favorite shows and those two are perfect for it!
