Default Boat launching 101! don'ts of boat launching!

Rule No.1. Be sure to keep rear wheels of druck on firm dry ground. Never back truck on to the seaweed covered part of the ramp at low tide!
I finally got the pictures from 2 weekends ago. You can see the slickness of the ramp.

I like the exhaust under water, doesn't offend the other ramp people or the neighbors nice and quiet.

The exhaust was right under the comparment door where I keep all of my tools and my ratcheting straps. As soon as I opened the door, the pressure and bubble from the exhaust made every single thing float out of the compartment and sink. It took me 30 minutes to find all my tools after I got the truck out.
