    I am sure we have all done weird things at the ramp. So what happened?
    Glad to hear your up and running.

    A few years ago I didn't set the parking brake on my truck, just left it in gear. The chop started the truck rolling into the water. Me thinking I was wenching the boat up the trailer, was actually pulling the truck in the water. Before I knew it, I was up to the front seats in water. It was on a Sunday in Dana Point, lots of people had a good laugh...

    Last year after i launched my boat in oceanside my wife was parking the truck and i tied to the dock. the wife came down the gangway and we both heard a LOUD Crash. we ran to the top of the gangway to look down at a boat missing the water by 15 feet. needless to say the guy was very upset. after seeing that i NEVER unhook the ring till the motors are in the water. Sorry about your Boat.

    I forgot the plug about a month ago at Guess where...Oceanside launch. That place is cursed. When i parked the truck and was walking to the boat, i looked at it and thought...man that dont look right, just then it dawned on me the severe sag was because my boat was filling up with water. I ran my ass off to get to the truck and get the boat on the trailer. When i pulled it out i sat there for 10 minutes draining water out. The guys next to me just laughed...said he did that last week. Which proves the point.....WE ALL GET OUR TURN!!!

    by any chance does your trailer have rollers or was it low tide or real steep ramp? thats the only time i worrry about taking the saftey chain off before the boat is in the water..... sorry about your day!

    Shit--really sorry to hear that--we all do things like that sometime.

    I've been thru a lot of severe things with my boats over the years--we all have--it looks huge now--but you'll get it fixed and back on the water sooner then you think.

    I'd be curious to hear how you got it back on the trailer--did you wait for the tide, or push it into the water, or jack or winch it up somehow?

    i sure hope that is one lesson i learn by example, instead of by experience. i know now i will NEVER back in AGAIN with the safety removed. sorry for your misfortune

    I hope the repairs are minor Jeff.






    I am amazed at how many people unhook their boats before they back down in the ramp to the water..................................what is the possible benefit???


    The only thing that can happen is bad, boats and concrete don't mix. I have seen it before in O'side, 4:30 am and an 18' trihull 25' from the water..........blocking a busy ramp:104167739 No bueno
