Even Kachina who is a small west coast builder delivers all their boats on the water. You pick it up at the factory, follow the tech to the lake, he drives it off the trailer, runs around for about half an hour, comes back to get you at the marina, shows you how to run it, trim it, operate everything and then shows you how to put back on the trailer and secure it. I can't imagine a new boater just hooking up the boat for the first time and going home. At least they water test all the boats too, so you aren't the first guy to drop it in the lake, he wont let a boat go home with being delivered at the lake period. Even my buddy who just bought his second one from him had to go through the process again.
