Sitting at a boat ramp on a busy weekend is the best entertainment one can possibly have. I've seen a truck slide into the water after the guy driving it got out to pull his kayak out of the bed without putting it in park/emergency brake. When the truck was pulled from the water by a tow truck the truck was in neutral. Saw a guy sink his boat after backing down the ramp without removing the tie downs. Multiple jackknifed trailers. Had a guy with no fishing license throw his fishing pole over the side when I approached and then claimed he wasn't fishing! I could go on and on

I once saw a guy fall out of his idling boat, swim 3/4 of a mile to shore, then run two miles down the beach to try to find his boat (which was found and boarded by a friend who was calling the Coast Guard when he spotted the boater on shore).
That guy was me.

Seen a couple of guys unhook before backing down leading to their boats sitting on the concrete at the edge of the ramp when they stopped. One was a really nice power cat that looked brand new.

Every summer I run a friends salmon boat for him as his personal guide. Just finished changing a treble hook on a spoon, bam another rod pops I grab the rod set the hook and pass the rod to my buddy and return to the helm to drive while he fights the fish. Spoon with brand new treble hook is on the sit where I left it. Taint that funny having a treble hook deep in the taint. Ended up having to be surgically removed. Attachment not found.

I have yet another that I am going to tell on myself. It was April 22 my birthday and I took the day off to go fishing. Well, I went to Pueblo Reservoir in Colorado. You know its cold in Colorado during April. Ok so I am by myself I unhook my boat from the trailer winch line and low and behold, my boat floats off the trailer. Did I mention there was a thin layer of ice on the water? So its gray light out and I’m all by myself and my boat is floating off. Well, I get out of the truck and run on to the dock. The boat is too far away for me to grab it. So I have a decision to make and I decide to strip. Yep I go skinny-dipping in April in Colorado get to my boat, climb in it and motor back to the dock. Once I tie up, I grab my clothes and jump in the truck and crank the heater to full blast. End of story, I dry off warm up, and go fishing.
