Oh, and I love the one who gets all excited about something normal and yells, "watch this or that" when you are in complete control. I have friends I do not call because they are just not boaters. If you ride with me twice I better only have to tell you once. The docking is a joke, If I couldn't park this thing sideways we would be repairing the gel each week. The argue over stupid things and don't know a cleat from a line. Some of the better ones: bumper thing, rope, string , front, back, rope tie thing, and some of the cleat jobs...oh my god Some make it almost impossible to release when they get tight. I have learned to go around and fix every one after having to cut a line that would not release from a raft up. it was almost melted it was pulled so tight when some moron tried to pull the entire 50 boat raft back in line. Lost a fender there, man they explode under pressure. All in all I have learned to do it by myself so many times I just say "stand still, I'll do it" I launch it and retrieve it with no help now, I have a system and it works so stand back and watch. There is a method to our madness, often times things are forgotten because someone else failed to do it the right way and damage occurs. If you want something done right, do it yourself. Now if I had a hottie who wanted to learn I would be grateful.
