Re: Cruising Skills/Practice
I can drive ,but don't ask me to back a trailer. Boats, lol lots of information, I will go slow when i begin my practice TY.
I used to go to those competitions for backing and such, a company I was contracted to sent me and a couple of others every year. I get so tickled at a boat ramp. It is not that hard, trained monkeys can do it, but just not those monkeys.
If you ever want a laugh go on youtube and search for backing down a boat ramp. It will have you rolling in the floor watching those guys, unless you are one of those guys, then not so much LOL.
I would say that my most aggravating time on the boat is getting into a tight fit at a dock with a cross current or wind, yet other guys, who have had a lot more practice than me make me look like a boob. I will get back to practice next year when I get back on a boat.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
