As always, Stupid Human Boating Tricks from our very own iboats.com Forums and I Love Boating Facebook page.

  • Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied.

    After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.

    Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

  • This just happened about a week ago. I bought a new trailer cause the one that the marina sold me for my 21' ofshore center console was way too small. I kept moving both trailers around in order to adjust the bunks etc. on the new trailer. Finally the time comes to head to the nearest boat ramp and switch trailers. With two trucks and a friend I put the boat in and then remove it on the new trailer. I bragged to my buddy about not having even gotten my feet wet.

    The ramp was deserted so I pulled up to the top of the hill and we start moving the winch stand and other things. just then I decide to put the boat back in the water to level it. As I start backing up my buddy starts to panic. I look back to see my boat and brand new trailer heading down the hill all by theirselves completely detached from the truck. The boat turned a curve and went straight down the ramp hitting the water at the perfect angle and washing down the back half of the deck.It seems I had forgot to attach the safety chains or even lock down the coupler when I was moving the trailers around earlier. After diving to the trailer to tie a rope I could no longer claim to have dry feet.
