Hey, just wait till you're out on the ski and some douche in a 20 foot Bayliner tells you to get a "real" boat

What a great sense of humor, and the balls to tell us about it.

Imagine if some of these same witnesses are at the ramp in the future when you come pullin' in with the Sportchassis and the cat behind you.

I'm picturing a scene from "War of the Worlds".

Seriously though Gino. Most of us are just laughin' at your misfortune and not really pokin' fun. I've had much bigger (size and $ lost) boating related incidents happen to me at a ramp, but don't share the enthusiasum you have in making them any more public than they already are.

If no one is injured, it just becomes another funny story.

I commend you for your lack of shame and embarrassment !! But, please do be careful.

Gino, my brother-in-law makes these shirts. Not sure why I didn't think of it before, but if anyone needs one it's you. PM me your address and I'll send you one.

Gino, When I see you at the runs I am always envious, but when I read your stories I'm thankful for being me. Thanks for keeping us all entertained

I think we should have a new thread. "The closest you can come to a Gino tale!"

Like, One time, with one of my old boats, we got back to the ramp. I ran up and got the pickup and trailer, backed it down into the water. My dates roommates boyfriend had taken the boat back out to load it on the trailer. I am standing at the front of the trailer, guiding him, it's walking back and forth 'cause it's a single engine, and when he gets just on the bunks, he hammers it full throttle to finish loading it. The wheel is still turned, the boat jumps sideways and lands on the fenders sideways, straddling them. I dive under the dock to keep from being killed, and he just looks at me and says, "What happened?" I jumped up on the dock, into the boat, and back off the throttle, still wide open with no prop in the water, turned off the key. Could have killed him. $3800 worth of damage. Never got a dime. Never let him on a boat with me again.

I know this is lame compared to "GINO, KING OF THE HAPPENINGS", and I'll try to remember more. Now, Let's Top Gino, (if you dare to try)!!
