This Veterans Day is sure a cold one here in the Mid Atlantic. And sadly the end of any hope to extend Summer any longer. So we had to do the Boat Ramp thing. Let me set the scene. I knew today was going to be even more colder and windy. So Friday morning was my small window to pull out. When I woke up the wind was already blowing, and the temp was in the mid 40’s and dropping. I had the boat ready by 9AM and shaking inside.
The boat ramp I use is effected by wind, current and with no guides on the trailer, how would it all go?
As I motored out towards the ramp, all bundled up, you could feel the wind blowing and the crisp cold smacking me in the face.
Jimmy had run the trailer over to the ramp and already backed in. We had one shot!
And yes, we captured the moment on video! Now. Remember there is no reverse steering. just the prop torque, and amazing paragon transmission. Which allows you to ease into gear. All my two years of practice was going to be called into action at this very moment!
