When we get in on Sunday afternoon cleaning the boat isn't a PIA because of the free entertainment i get watching the ramp across the creek. I've seen this guy on the Baja do what Sydwayz described before. Next time i see him go out i'll have the camera ready to get a pic. of his stupidity. Because of guys like him our HOA had to spend 13 grand last winter to fix our ramp because it got washed out. He's the cousin of a guy down the street and uses our private community ramp every weekend, doesn't live here and doesn't pay dues.

so this guy backs down the ramp to put his boat on,
gets out of his truck,puts his waiters on up to his neck,
puts a block under his trailer wheel then truck wheel,
then goes to the front of his truck and disconnects the,
battery brings it back to the trailer and hooks to his winch,

you do the math, it was dark buy the time i got
my fng boat out of the water.

This guy ties up across the opening of the single launch ramp; and proceeds to take for fricking EVER to walk 50 yards to retrieve his truck and trailer. He backs down the ramp, and walks out to the boat. In the mean time, our friend Russ pulls up with my truck and trailer and proceeds to offer help, yet the Baja owner continues on his own.

This it the best part! He pulls the Baja onto the trailer, and powers on about 3/4 of the way at about 3500rpm +/-. HE BACKS THE THROTTLE DOWN TO 2500RPM AND LEAVES THE BOAT IN GEAR blowing water about 5 feet in the air and 20 feet back!!! HE LEAVES THE COCKPIT AND WALKS UP THE BOW to the winch and proceeds to hook up the winch and start winching the boat up the trailer; ALL THE WHILE STILL IN GEAR AT 2500RPM!!

Fortunately the boat did not rocket up his POS trailer and kill him. Upon seeing this guy's "expertise" our friend Russ, politely moves WAY the hell away from this spectacle. The guy walked down the bow and shut the motor down. THEN, he proceeds to drive up the ramp with the DRIVE STILL DOWN.

I guess it takes all kinds!
See what happens when you rush people!!! LOL
