Looks like fun. Was launching easy? Will I need to put the launch wheels on or can I literally camp 20 feet from the lake edge?

You will need your wheels on, I struggled on my own dragging my Honwave out and up to the tent, I was fairly close at around 100 yards from the water.

There was hardly any beach at all and the water was very choppy.

Well sorry guys I have no video footage so I will have to check if all is working correctly on my camera.

Also it took awhile to get my engine running properly it kept cutting out, not sure why I will get it in for its first service sometime this week, otherwise it was nice to meet up with newbies Glow and greg2103 and their families, we will have to do this again sometime in the near future
