I agree. When we arrive at the ramp we pull aside till everything's ready. If I'm having difficulty with something, I'll walk back and tell the person/family waiting behind me to go ahead and launch.See, This is how it all starts,then the next time it's 5 min. and so on. Their is a procedure here and it's common coutesy to load or unload in the staging area or a spot away from the ramp. People are waiting in the water to load or waiting in line to unload so common sence dictates get it in or out ASAP. I have patience for someone having a difficulty trying to load there boat,but the launching part is a no brainer. As soon as I park my truck I get on board turn keys and im gone. Others sit on the dock bullsheeting on the cell,putting on lotion,waiting for guests that havn,t arrived yet. This is why those of us that are methodical and calculated get peeeeeed at these people. The day is short people and I dont want to spend all my time at the ramp. Only those of us who trailer in busy launch areas know where I'm coming from.
When it comes time to launch, the dock lines are attached and waiting, all gear is on board and stowed, batteries are switched on. Once she's launched, trailer parked, we fire up and pull out as soon as possible to make way for others.
Same at the end of the day. We load as fast as possible and pull aside while I remove the drain plugs and attach the trailer tie-downs.
We may not be as fast at the ramp as some but we are proud of the fact that we're faster than most.
