Default Launch ramp comedy in Ft Lauderdale?

I'm in Ft Lauderdale for the weekend and was wondering where is the best launch ramp for comedic relief.

Not much comedy around here, we do it all year so we get good at it!!!

But if you insist on seeing something funny, Follow Hillsboro Blvd(Deerfield) West, past US 441, and out Loxahatchee road to the everglades, and watch the rednecks launch the airboats, These guys are good, but just too funny, they back the truck right into the damn water, and some of them even leave it there, so they dont have to back up the trailer when they come back. This is practically in my back yard. Oh wait, that would make me a redneck too, wouldnt it???

Actually, probably the funniest ramp with real boats would be either 14th. street Pompano, or John LLoyd Park in Dania..

Here is the everglades ramp , if you want to call it that, most of the guy get impatient, and just back the whole rig right down the bank, and back the boat off.

Go into the Dania park. Real nice setting and lots of boats going in and out.

Make sure to go to John LLoyd Park next door to Dania Beach, that is where the ramps are. Dania Beach is nice too, and there is a Marina there, but mostly cruisers, the comedy will be at the State Park.

Check out SE 15th St in Fort Lauderdale on saturday and sunday afternoons.
All the drunken fishing rednecks come back and start emptying the beer cans out of the boats, that and trying to back the trailers.
It's a very busy place with 4 slots, occasionally a fight will break out over whose turn was next!
Here's what it looked like today:

I love the new avatar!

My redneck fishing buddy goes in and out of Lloyd park all the time. He took me out a few months ago. We trolled from Ft lauderdale south to the next inlet and then came up the intercoastal back to the ramp.

It was real nice to get out on the water in the middle of winter.

Yeah, John Lloyd is good too, I almost got into it myself with some moron in line in front of me to launch.
He thought the time to get your boat set up for launching is AFTER you back down the ramp!
There are more rednecks and drunks at 15th st , because it's FREE. I think it costs $5 to get into Lloyd park.

I was hoping you didn't have it copyrighted!
