Ample truck/trailer parking is my biggest concern. I hate seeing the deep parking spots meant for boat trailers taken up by some punk in a car. I dont care much for those who park their boat in the way of a launch and sit for 20 minutes waiting for some fat women to make it down the ramp either.....this happens more and more to me.

Last weekend we were pulling our 38' out at the New Buffalo ramps. The ramps there are very short. I docked and tied up to one (of 6). There was a jet ski using one of the other ramps, so that leaves 4 available. My wife watched the boat while I ran to the truck. I backed the trailer into another open ramp. (Still 3 available) Before I could jump into the boat to drive it onto the trailer, a lady aproached my wife about her son who was broken down on Lake Michigan. Then this older guy comes rolling in to the docks on his 18' I/O and very rudely says "How many ramps you need to get that boat out?" I politely asked him how many he needed. (As there were three available) We ended up getting the Coast Guard on the radio and verified that they had the lady's kid boat in tow.

Longer docks would be nice!
