I went boating yesterday for mothers day with the whole family and it was packed, our local lake has a 5 mph rule (driftwood), so everyone went to the next nearest lake. After we were done we went to the ramp. I usually dock the boat, go get my vehicle and back up, but it was too crowded and that wasnt going to happen, there was only one dock and there was always a trailer backing up, so I had my wife drop me off and I was going to have her load the boat on the trailer for the first time, well when I positioned the trailer and my wifes 3 attempts failed I had to swim to the boat and load it myself since I was taking so much time I immediatly jumped off and pulled the boat out I didnt pull the trim all the way up and it scraped a little, not bad, had scraped it in my drive way once before and I couldnt tell the difference, but I also forgot to turn the engine off, it was out of the water for 30-40 seconds before I had my wife turn it off, I was sick to my stomack, brought it home and attached the clam hooked up the hose/water and it turned over and sounded fine, what else can I check? BTW I am a newb just boat my first boat in July 2005. Man I still get nervous unloading and loading my boat not as much as last year but this didnt help things out. My prioty now is to train my wife to back up the trailer and load the boat on the trailer.
