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

  • Moving a boat from the street to garage I quickly hitch up for the short jaunt, I hear an odd clunk when I start backing over the curb to my driveway. I get out and look to see the hitch has risen up higher than normal on the ball and appears to be barely hanging onto the ball (looking back I'm not sure if that was a problem or not but I thought it looked loose and needed to be re-attached). No problem I thought, just undo the clamp and put it back down.

    Well, I forgot the trailer tires were up against the curb, when I pulled the trailer off the ball the 3000 boat and trailer came rocketing forward and crashing to the ground, barely missing my foot and truck bumper. I sat there blocking the street until my neighbor came out to help me lift the tongue back up.

    I still get the creeps thinking about how I almost lost some toes on that deal.

  • I launched at a local marina this week, something I rarely do, and I noticed one of the marina employees backing an empty Malibu wakeboard boat trailer down the ramp using good sized John Deere tractor. For whatever reason the guy didn't or couldn't stop and he ended up deep in the lake. The ramp was shallow and the trailer didn't look heavy at all and I didn't have any problem launching a 2500-3000 lb boat so I'm not sure what happened.

    I didn't laugh and I didn't take any pictures, I just felt bad for the guy. I hope he didn't lose his job.
