      And my favorite line in boating:

      Don't approach anything (dock, lift, trailer, rock, stump) any faster than you are willing to hit it.

       

       

      My favorite line in boating is the one attached to the wakeboard handle..... :biggrin:

      This.  I ALWAYS tell new folks to sit down and stay put until I tell them to move.  Too easy to crush a limb.

      Agree here too.  Another problem is the dudes on the dock that insist on "helping" when I approach the dock.  Sometimes they'll ask if I need help (and be offended when I decline), or they will take initiative and grab the bow rail or tower.  If they get hurt (crushed limb?), who do you think they will place at fault?

      I tend to lean on the side of caution and floating the bow through the gates of the lift and “walking “ the boat into position is where I was going with my comment.

      power loading a boat onto a lift or trailer is a recipe for several unintended consequences.

       

      Agree here completely.  Powering the boat on to the trailer (or lift) will catch up with you eventually.  I only power on the trailer when I have no other choice, namely when there is no dock at the ramp.  I will typically pull up to the dock, get out, and walk the boat on to the trailer.  Sometimes the boobs at the dock give me a hard time.  They don't realize that a mistake with a V-Drive is a costly one.

      I will take the extra 90 seconds to walk the boat up rather than risk a prop strike.

      Respectfully, I disagree with this.  I prefer everyone remain seated until we stop moving, otherwise someone grabs a corner and it can cause the boat to spin or really do anything that is unexpected or is working against what you are trying to do.  A good driver should not rely on any assistance.  And really no human body should be trying to stop the momentum of a 23 LSV, that's a lot of boat, there is a pretty good risk of injury especially if they are non-boaters or kids.

      This.  I ALWAYS tell new folks to sit down and stay put until I tell them to move.  Too easy to crush a limb.
