If they did that one in the 2nd video every week in a stadium they could sell millions of tickets. WTF

If you are going to try and be a hot shot "EXPERT" at least have your marine termanology right!!

Our slip at the Marina where our lift is at is maybe 50-75 yards facing what is supposed to be a 3 lane ramp. We ALWAYS try to be back to the slip regardless of what's happening at the sandbars just to have our dock chairs out by 5:00 p.m to watch the show. Some of the stuff we have seen over the years most would not believe.

you should mount/point a low budget internet cam and get a live stream. I'd log into watch on a rainy day...

I cant count how many people have asked how I can load or unload my boat so easy, Its all in the prep. Your either ready to launch or ready to hook up. I've made a bunch of mistakes in the past & will own up to them. But I learned from said mistakes so I know what not to do.
