Ah, the boat ramp — a place where proud men can be laid low in moments, and where tempers burn short and hot. Especially on a holiday weekend. And while Thanksgiving might not be a boating holiday in some states, it definitely is in Florida.
There are few boaters who have not felt the wrath of other waiting to load or unload behind them. On a busy day, the line at some ramps can extend out to the road, and everyone’s patience is wearing a bit thin by the time they get close. The last thing they want to see is someone using more time than they ought to be allotted.
