This is awesome!  :bow: Wouldn't want to be at the helm when the pilot puts the pedal to the metal, though.  ;D

...I wouldn't want to be the one loading the T and C-Stoff into the Me-163 in a pitching sea. One spill and it's the Wicked Witch of the North's famous line--"I'm Melting!"

I wouldn't want to be loading them full stop.

It looks really neat but I'm not sure why you'd want to put the launcher on a turn-table though, turning the boat into the wind would be all you need.
