Well, your suggestion came shortly after advising a complete novice to stick a 60hp 2-stroke onto a 4.5m RIB and "have some fun" and it looked like a pattern might be forming!

Obviously that was a couple of years ago before I realised what an upstanding member of the community you undoubtedly are. Good to see you didn't take offence!

For what it's worth I've used the "commando launch" technique too, and not had any problems with it. It's cool, but there is undoubtedly scope to screw up big time so I would be cautious recommending it . . .

Nah, course not. But I do have a very long memory which is why you took so many headshots from behind at the paintball do.
