    Question about Boat Launching Procedures in thailand

    Boat Launching Procedures


    So here it is.

    I just bought a new boat and decided to take 'er for the maiden voyage this past weekend.

    This is my first boat and I wasn't quite sure of the exact Standard Operating Procedures for launching it off a ramp, but I figured it couldn't be too hard.

    I consulted my local boat dealer for advice, but they just said "don't let the trailer get too deep when you are trying to launch the boat".

    Well, I don't know what they meant by that as I could barely get the trailer in the water at all!

    What am I doing wrong?


    Anyhow, here's a picture below. See for yourself. What am I doing wrong?

    That boat on the right side looks very scary, to high, must have incredible ballast weight !

    It's prolly a place better not going boating with locals...

    To start with, you should have bought a much bigger outboard and a boat with more freeboard.

    Is that a Ford pickup? If it was a Toyota, would have been able to start it and reverse right out.
    KW, I recommend you pay a visit to the gym. You look positively FAT!

    Somebody print out that picture and show it to some Bangkok lady-boys, from that angle they will know immediately if it is butterfly , its important because some might think KW is lying and we cant have that

    Do you have to put in one of those stupid laughing things so everybody else will understand your meant to be funny or is it to remind yourself just how "funny" you are?

    You remind me of an senile old man who lived a couple of doors down from us, his right hand seemed to be permanently down the front of his trousers giving his knob a stroking.
    He got carted away in a white van, so we won't be surprised if you disappear suddenly.

    Geezz and I always hear about this famous sense of humor that British sorts are supposed to have? I guess that doesn't extend to their mis-fit kiwi cousins.. and I very rarely put in those smilies but obviously even with it, it still went over your head tosser..
