2. That's the most bass-ackwards approach to launching a boat I've seen in 60 years of boating.

3. You know what they say BOAT stands for?

 

Bring On Another Thousand.

I've always enjoyed having friends who have boats and just buying the gas and the beer.

5. As the new owner of a boat....

 

I fully agree with your sentiment. It was much easier filling my friends cooler than it is actually being the owner.

4. For anyone who has launched boats this is not that far fetched.

 

Man the things I've seen people do when launching or trailering a boat are amazing. Last one was an owner driving a 60K Mastercraft right smack into a dock at about 20mph. And they hit if sort of off the bottom side so it nearly rolled over too boot.

My fav was the family that got pissed at each other and the Father started throwing everything into the water surrounding the launch including the cooler of beer.

6. I watched a member of the Coast Guard....

 

back his F150 into the water. The front bumper was at the water line. He backed it down, went a couple of feet further than he wanted, and still had it in reverse when he went to bring it out a little.

When you think you are about to go forward and end up going in reverse the thrust of your body goes forward.

7. Sometimes the ones who really drive you nuts are the ones

 

who have an 8 or 12 ft. basic fishing boat who take f o r e v e r to put it in and then, and then, they tie the damn thing up to the dock or the wife does the hold onto ropes thing at the dock cuz' she can't drive the boat and the guy has gone to park or retrieve the truck/trailer.

Then there are the people who let their kids swim at a boat launch. Duh!

11. I saw a guy have a helluva time getting his boat of the trailer. The engine fired, the prop turned.

 

... but those damn tie-down straps just wouldn't let go.
