This is for anyone who doesn't have a clue about proper boat ramp etiquette. I know that nobody on here does these things, but if you do here are a few tips.
1. Practice backing you trailer at home, not at a crowded boat launch!
2. If there is a line at the ramp, GET AT THE BACK. Public ramps are first come first serve!
3. While waiting your turn untie and prep your boat at this point, not while you are sitting on the ramp!
4. If the ramp has room for two vessels, use one side or the other not STRAIT DOWN THE MIDDLE!!!
5. Once the boat is in the water move it to the side so others can use the ramp while you park!
6. If you must use the battery from your tow vehicle to operate the boat you will need to refer back to tip #5!
7. Now here's where it gets tricky people! Once you return to the ramp from your time on the water, you will be getting in another line so pay close attention to who was there when you arrived so you don't step on anyones toes!
8. If you didn't use tip #1 lets hope the launching process warmed you up for the loading process!
9. Load your boat onto the trailer as quickly as possible and move it out of the way. Once clear of everyone else you can unload your gear and tie down the boat!
10. Once out of the water you discover the boat is on the trailer crooked, you will need to refer back to tips 1-9!
Sorry for the rant guy's, just needed to vent.
