Dang,
I watched that entire video, waiting and waiting for a joke. What a dissappointment.

Conflicting messages:

"Back into the water until the cooling holes in lower unit are submerged" yet the LU never hits the water in the animation.

"Release winch line and slowly back the boat into the water" Then why did you need to submerge the LU cooling holes?

If not a roller trailer, that boat would never have left the bunks.

Other than that, I'd give it a B-. Animation shows 2 people which makes things easier; I often launch alone, so my procedure is a bit different.

RIBase
Tie it to the dock! yeah right! What it should say is let your missus hold the painter whilst stood up to her whatsit in mud & slimy water trying to hold the boat while the jetskiers buzz round creating wake wash, at the same time a stiff onshore breeze is trying to bury her under the boat. Meanwhile you drive half a mile trying to find a parking spot because some coffin dodger has parked in the trailer bays( they need a big space 'cos it's a Micra) whilst they walk their four legged f4nny licker around the harbour. Eventually you get back puffing & panting to find an irate queue of other boaters waiting to launch/recover. Oh then you have to pay 20 for the pleasure to some miserable terwat from the council, that'd be the same council that you've just paid your 1000+ council tax to.

Bitter, not me
