I have seen this done, thought hmm looks cool, then did it myself, then though about it. There are so many ways that this technique could and has gone wrong. I do not launch boats this way now and strongly discourage others who wish to ape apparently cool people launching "commando" style as some dubbed it.
As said you are totally out of control should you need to abort the launch-so you cant.
I've not seen any combos pulled into the water yet, what a pickle to get into!
