Well it appears that it has been done more than once, and by venerable members of this community. The other one is bigger than me so I'm not brave enough to name names
So Gramas, you are in good company

In my defence, I was 22 and it was the first boat refurb that I'd embarked upon. I was just unlucky that my overlong screws found the wooden bunks in perfect alignment. Otherwise I may've spotted the bastards and not looked quite such a tit when attempting to launch the thing. :-)
