Quoting Alberchico (Thread starter):
it looks so incredibly risky

It appears to be, where I live in rural AK, there are few roads and most of the transportation involves boats, planes, or snowmobile. When someone wants a vehicle in a smaller village they usually load it onto a 32foot fiberglass fishing boat with a small crane transport it, then offload with another crane at the destinaion. A few years ago a brand new, well drilling rig fell of a 50 ft boat, nearly capsizing it in the process. $100,000 piece of machinery in the drink and no insurance to cover it. OOPS!

It's Russian Roulette. What's the problem?

I'd make sure the hand brake was on. Big grin

Seriously though, i'd either dangle it partially off the other end in equal measure or park it long ways.

....and have a close eye on the shipping forecast.

With ANY kind of wave action that car looks like it would go in the water! Couldn't they find a boat that was bigger than the car?

I didn't get much from that article but I just spent over an hour looking at some of the other articles on that site. Thanks for sharing it, I learned a lot about Russia from the site!
