Looks like he was launching the boat with a front hitch.
It was shared on Face Book with this caption:

Oops!
This is what happens when you hit the gas when you meant to go for the brakes. Those pedals are so close in the C's, I can attest to that. BTW no one was injured in the incident other than pride.

Sitting by the boat ramp and watching folks launch/haul can be a lot of fun. Some of the things you see, and the stupidity of people, are unbelievable.

My cousin-in-law/camping buddy & I have threatened to get a couple of blue vests and just stand around at the boat ramp asking "How can I help you?" ....

I agree, especially watching people try and back down the ramp! Another favorite is when they almost totally submerge a drive on trailer and try to get the boat centered.
