that will work and I think in Montana or Wyoming you can ''train'' a double hitch. That is like a ''toad'' with a ''trailer'' hooked to it, but dont try to get into a 7/11 for gas ..... and dont try to back up. Be sure and check me on this because most of the time my free advise is wrong .... I seldom take my own advise...

Thank a Vet for your freedoms........ they gave them to you....

Yup, either "hit the brakes too hard", ...or...boat throttle jammed wide open when approaching the boat ramp !!

Either way, looks like it turned out O.K....

Note what appears to be a self installed dually axel on what appears to be a Toyota.

I would not say that truck is overloaded.. From the looks of it it may well have been within spec (It is a duly after all, some of those can carry 10,000 pounds GVW or more Even in a pick up format)

To the list of states that allow "Double tow" Michigan has allowed a boat to be towed behind a 5th wheel for some time and I think the last revision of the vehicle code eliminated the "Boat only" restriction.

HOWEVER.. If you plan on doing it.. Check the law first. Please don't take my word for it.

Re-looking at that photo.. That truck does seem kind of "low in the rear" and it does appear the duals are "After market" so perhaps It is running a bit heavy.

Of course he could always get a bigger truck.

It says "Jesus is Lord" across the back of the coach. So, he knows that.

The truck appears to be a slight bit narrower than the watercraft. The lower unit may have damaged the step bumper too.

That doesnt look like a dually axle, looks like its a 'add a dually' wheel adapter..
