I ain't skeered....

Sitting at the boat ramp, tending a hauling box for some fish we will be stocking in a forest pond, I observed 2 gents from Ontario who took the better part of a fall hour to launch a pontoon boat.

Evidently it involves backing the truck and trailer down the ramp far enough to where all 4 truck tires are in the water and the dry box on the trailer tongue is nearly submerged.

Then, you load the boat with gear, because doing so in the staging area is silly and polite. But you can't load the boat with the truck in the water, so you have to pull the truck out, circle around, and block nearly both of the ramp lanes.

Again, I am not scared of Bushart's forces. They aren't crack, and are far from fast.
