Have you seen the new underwater exhibit at the boat ramp in PT. Pleasant ? I have many times, it always gets lots of attention.

The new submarine truck!  Launch your boat, and not worry about parking in that crowded boat ramp lot!

 

I always wondered how people managed to do that.  I can't say I've launched boats 100s of times, but done it a couple dozen in the last few years and never had an issue.  My biggest issue is backing the trailer up straight!

Dodge truck for sale.  Low mileage.  Very clean.  "Ran when parked."

 

 

 

Brings back memories of my teens hanging out on the boat ramp for Porpoise Channel, Stony Brook, NY.  The ramp dumps into a strong side current when the tide is moving.  The tide eroded out the sand/gravel at the bottom of the ramp such that the ramp ended with a 30 inch drop off.  This meant that at low tide, trailer tires would drop off the ramp if the drivers backed up too far and the trailer would drop onto the trailer frame.  Smart drivers would ask for a few kids like me to help lift the trailer frame while they drove forward, pile rubble in front of the trailer tires to get up the ramp drop off, or back further down the ramp and then start up the ramp such that only 1 trailer tire hit the ramp shelf at a time - better chance to pop the tire onto the ramp.  Most drivers had too much ego to ask for or accept help - and would spend their time spinning their wheels and going back and forth tying to pull trailers up over the ramp shelf - the result was usually a broken trailer.  Sometimes the guy would burn up his auto transmission or ruin his clutch.  Then there was the fun of watching people back up on the ramp w/o knowing how to back up a trailer.  After a while, the other people waiting to use the ramp would let the driver know what they thought of the driver's driving ability while they waited their turn to use the ramp (ramp could fit 2 users easily at same time).  Sometimes the police would have to break things up.  Occasionally, a clueless drivers was smart enough to allow an experienced driver to back the vehicle for them or let us kids guide them - mostly to explain how the trailer moves opposite of the steering wheel direction when reversing.  

 

I quickly discovered that wealthy people who inherit $$ are ungrateful bums and self-made wealthy are very appreciative and great tippers.  Also, drunk boaters make boat ramps extremely entertaining to watch.     

 

Good times. . . .

 

 

 

Also  . . .boat launching can be risky - it is best left to the professionals.    Harbor patrol police in Canada losing their tow rig . . .
