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

  • Yesterday, around 5 p.m., a buddy and I roll up to the launch for some fishing. It is a single lane launch and there is a boat in front of us prepping. So we pull in behind them to do the same.

    I look down the hill to see if anyone is launching and there is a pick-up parked at the bottom and a guy on a jet ski just taking off. I figure someone else was in the truck and would be pulling out soon.

    Well there WAS someone in the truck, his wife/girlfriend, but she was sitting in the passenger side and had no plans of moving the truck. So for the next 10 minutes we watch this guy zip around the lake, back and forth, until he finally comes back in.

    As he walks up the ramp he obviously notices how angry everyone standing there is, so he asks "are you guys trying to launch your boat"?

    Uh..no genius. We just pulled them down here so we could sit around and watch your awesomeness on your jet ski. No worries!

  • So, my family and my buddy and his wife are camping together this weekend... We fished last night, wasn't horrendous, went this a.m., and about the same. Had a blast, even if we didn't catch much.

    Came back to the camper this a.m. - and another friend's sister texted and said they had a friend (I know -- right?) that was stranded on the lake and needed help. We weren't doing anything pressing, so, we decided to go put my buddies boat in the water to run across the lake and help them out.

    My buddy's boat rope... can't be more than 10' long. The ramp is SWAMPED with people... so he backed down to the water, I unhooked the boat, and pushed it off... and tried to jump out of the way so the next guy could back into the drink... as I stepped up to the dock... the short rope caught me... and I landed on the dock like a beached whale... I jumped up to do a little damage control and see how many saw it happen... and judging by the sneers and laughter... most of them saw it, and many more heard it (aluminum dock... fat dude falling on it... make big noise.) As only a man would say... "I'm okay!"... after everyone's wondering if the moron that made a dent in an aluminum dock is alright.

    I'd like to say the only thing I hurt was my pride... but I'd be lying... big 'ol black and blue knot on my left leg kinda tells the story.

    Moral of the story is, while it's nice to hurry your stride to get out of the way and make life easier for someone else... it's not imperative that it all happens in 30 seconds.

  • My wife was pulling into the dock to pick me up after I dropped the truck and trailer off. It's her first time driving our new to us boat with an injected 454 and a Bravo III as compared to our former carbed 350 and Alpha.

    So typically she will just simply nose in and I jump from the Dock onto the bow and she reverses and off we go. Yeah, you know where this is going already don't you. So, she gives the same amount of reverse as she did with the old boat as I am airborne, but our new boat has instant reactions to her input and the bow catches my forward foot in FULL reverse and I go butt end over tea kettle into the drink in front of 30 or so "Observers." Once I came up from the water I was applauded and even had several 8's or 9's. Pretty sure some drunk lady gave me a 10!

    Sometimes all you can do is wave and 'thank you' gracefully, then get your butt out of there quickly so as to limit the embarrassment. Ultimately, though, you lived and have a good story for the campfire.
