UNLOADING AND LAUNCHING

A few simple guidelines that will make the time at the boat ramp shorter and more pleasant.

If you are a beginner almost anyone in line behind you would be glad to assist you.

Be courteous; everyone's always in a hurry. Ramp is open 24 hours.

1 Get in line - No one likes a line jumper.

2 During the dark, TURN HEADLIGHTS OFF - they blind everyone - park lights are ok.

3 Get gear and boat ready to launch before getting on the ramp.
If you need additional time wave others around but stay in line.

4 The most experienced driver should position the boat so the novice will only have to
back a short distance and pull straight ahead to park. (see #7)

5 Wait off the bank until your partner is ready to board.

6 If you are solo, unload, park your boat and move your vehicle & trailer off the
ramp as soon as possible.

7 Park Straight!!! Crooked parking wastes parking spaces and
increases the chances of the next guy running over your trailer.

7 Use caution leaving ramp. This can be as dangerous as a Shotgun Start.

LOADING AND LEAVING

If you are a beginner almost anyone in line behind you would be glad to assist you.

1 Drop the driver off at the ramp. If solo or with a novice, beach the boat, otherwise wait
off the bank while others are loading their boats and until your trailer is on the ramp.

2 During the dark LEAVE HEADLIGHTS OFF until you are off the ramp.

3 The experienced driver should position the trailer so the novice can pull straight ahead.

4 After loading, pull as far away from the ramp as possible to reduce congestion.
Do not turn headlights on until you are leaving.

Add your suggestions!

Just keep in mind that some vehicles can not turn their headlights off (Toyota FJ). They burn as running lights but are still bright enough to tick off others at the ramp.

FJ has a module in the drivers side headlight that disables the DRLs. All FJ owners should disable if they use the ramps at night.

If you are in front of me on the ramp, hurry up. If you dont know if it is me behind you, it would be better if you just hurried up anyway

lol and all you guys with your chicken lights all over your decks,,bows,powerpoles,etc. Please dim them when unloading your boat,cause my partner has decided to remove his graph and installed a CB!!!! And sits at the dock looking for lot lizards to fish with lol. Causes congestion around unloading dock!
