Wisconsin Teens Tryout To Be Mail Boat Jumpers

LAKE GENEVA, Wis. (CBS) — It’s sound advice for most people to avoid jumping on or off a moving boat.

But for some teens in Wisconsin — a successful leap — is the key to landing a coveted summer job.

Teens are literally jumping at the chance to make special deliveries as mail boat jumpers — a Lake Geneva tradition more than 100 years old.

The 12 teens trying out for the six coveted spots, are laser focused as they deliver mail from pier-to-pier.

Mail jumpers make deliveries to 75 homes every day during the summer.

The mail boat also offers tours for spectators who just want a front row seat to the action. Unfortunately, not every leap is successful.
