I just found this on Themalibucrew and thought it should also be on here.

Fun things to look for:

Can you find the guy who swims his boat to the dock.

Find the new driver who tries valiantly 5 times to trailer his boat.

Count how many people chose to use the small dock to set up there boat rather than do it while waiting in line to launch it.

Fun video. Ended up watching it all, quite entertaining. I think it's the music. I found 1 and 2 but didn't even attempt the 3rd. There's got to be some other funny things going on that nobody has noticed.

I thought it was pretty efficient for the most part... no trucks submerged, boats banging to each other.. pretty good for a super busy dock/ramp

Anyone notice all the red mud trails behind all the boats as they motor around.

Five hours is 300 minutes, in 3 minutes, that's 50 minutes time for every 30 seconds.
The red cuddy cabin at the start doesn't clear the ramp until 33 seconds, and who knows how long it was there before.

Thank god I live near a private lake that stuff looks too stressful!!! Good entertainment though. I felt bad with no one in line missed the trailer due to bad winds drifting me.

No kidding, that looks very very stressful. I don't live at a private lake but we have so many boat ramps in TN we don't see congestion like that. I probably wouldn't have been that interested in buy my boat if I had to deal with those sort of conditions.

I've launched at that ramp a few times before and it definitely can be a pain. That center lane seems to confuse people. They can't stay in the lines.

That looked like a piece of cake. You should see the lines at Mohave or Havasu. Havasu has site 6 where people actually go to watch people launch and recover. It's a mad house and the people watching will make fun of people that have a hard time. Talk about a stressful launch ramp, try that one.

I haven't seen it personally, but I've heard of a place where they sit around with coolers and number signs, and rate you as you trailer, like in an iceskating rink. I'm still in the "not 100% comfortable trailering (especially in wind)" with this V Drive, and would stress even more while trailering with those guys. Where are they again, so I won't be there?
