Loading a Boat on the Trailer by Yourself

One of the more common “fails” videos or social media posts out there today are the compilations of mistakes people make at the boat ramp.  We’ve all seen the pictures of vehicles in the water and the myriad of other things that can happen when inexperienced people try to launch a boat.  Also, one of the more frustrating things for experienced boat owners is having to wait while an inexperienced person clogs a boat launch while preparing his boat on the ramp, taking a long time to do so.

He shares the key to being safe, efficient, and speedy on the launch ramp.
