Mail boat delivery dock jump auditions

LAKE GENEVA, Wis. (WKRC) -- Some Wisconsin teens are really "jumping" into their summer jobs.

They are trying out to be summer mail boat jumpers.  The college students try to jump off a tour boat, deliver mail to the lakefront homes, then get back on board before the boat passes the dock.
It's not that easy!

One person auditioning said, "Throwing yourself at the boat, getting back on, that's really the hardest part.  Because the boat's just flying past you and you gotta make it on without getting wet!"

Each potential candidate gets scored in different categories including athletic skill, accurate delivery and enthusiasm.
