So while putting up the boat in the wind I could see an old man having trouble. I put my boat on the trailer and hopped out to help him. I got his boat lined up and wrenched him in. He said "you young guys seen to launch boat easier than us old ones." I said "you don't look that old." and he said "Guy , I am 58." I didn't have the heart to tell him I'm 60. LOL Must have been my choice of loud music.(You kids turn that [censored] down.LOL) You are as old as you feel.

I guess if fishing is a sport then I am a heck of an athlete. Almost at Greek God level.

well done young man. My old Nitro savage is the easiest boat in the world to load, in most any wind. But my families pontoon is a different story. I have had some issues when there is a strong wind. 63 yrs old here

Dang I must look really old. I was fishing at FPH last friday afternoon. I was fishing alone so I tied my boat to the dock and went to the truck and backed trailer into the water at the ramp. As I was walking back onto the dock a young lady maybe 35 or 40 years young had just backed her husband and kids and the Tige' wakeboard boat off the trailer and parked their vehicle. As the husband was easing to the dock she said "Sir I could help you and back your truck and trailer in" I thanked her for asking and said no I don't mind doing it even though that not true. It's a hassle to unload and load when your alone. Anyway I do appreciate her offering and also appreciate a woman who can back a trailer. Yes I have a few guys offer to help load or unload and have taken them up on it it sure helps out. But I sometime think of a friend of mine and his wife at Lake Fork about 10 years ago when a stranger said " y'all hop in the boat and I'll park the truck for ya. I'll hide the keys on the bumper" . Well as they slipped off the trailer the truck pulled up but kept going.DPS found the trailer 40 miles from there but no truck or purse At least he was insured.
