Far left truck did get a citation slip! "Taking up multiple parking spots". But they didn't give the middle guy one and he was still there lol. Maybe the handicap sticker saved him?!

I saw those Rocket Scientist myself. We just out riding around today when I saw this myself. It was at PINES. This is just like when they back down the middle of a 2 lane boat ramp.

Are there any lines for guidance? I wish all boat ramps had directional arrows pointing everyone in the same direction so a line can be formed. Otherwise it becomes a free for all. Don't get me started on "unload everything on the ramp guy" instead of unloading it when he was waiting prior to getting on the ramp. People are clueless, inconsiderate or both.

Sometimes the less experienced participants are left to the parking & retrieval process, not really knowing or scared, causing a problem. Patience grasshopper.

A coworker once went fishing with me, and responded he could park the trailer when asked. He didn't volunteer that in spite of his affirmative answer, he had never moved a vehicle 20 feet with a trailer attached. At the end of the day, he informed me that a fender on the trailer was crinkled, having contacted a heavy bumper on a truck in the parking lot that he claimed was not damaged by the event. The other truck was gone, and I surely hope it wasn't damaged by the idiot who trashed my trailer fender.

Don't ya just love the "on the ramp get ready" folks. Waiting in the dark about 20 boats back from there ramp, getting everything but the front strap unhooked and had a jack wagon try to pull around me to get one place closer to the ramp. Needless to say I stood in the middle of the road till my partner could pull the ride and boat up behind the rig in front of us and went back to getting everything ready. We launched, they pulled in behind us and backed down to the water and YEP you guessed it, they started getting their stuff out of the back of the truck and took their sweet time getting ready to launch. Didn't see where they parked, but I bet they messed up it up as well.

I've seen a few fights come close to breaking out on the ramp when guys try to cut. not sure why they think their time is more important. Just wait your turn (and grumble like I do). if you are ready and think others are not, a simple polite question works 99% of the time.

I also enjoy the person that prematurely pulls all the way up to spot just before the ramp and loads there, making it impossible for those that are ready to pass or swing to back down the ramp. They aren't doing it on the ramp, but it has the same effect.
