Default ramp boat

Guessing same thing that sinks most ramp or ferry boats. Someone forgets to close the ramp and Joey said he was not on it.

Years ago, me and a couple of friends floated down the Shenandoah like we have done about a thousand times. We had 751lbs of people in a flatbottom rated for 750lbs. A snake tried to get in the boat .Rudy stood up and the boat sank to the bottom. Fortunately we were only in about 6ft of water. We blamed the snake.So, King, my point is, blame the snake.

Southers,
I see you are in Va. i grew up in Loudoun County and just moved to Maine from Fredericksburg. I loved it there but moved up here to be closer to family.

thansk guys, the U boat one is afunny and i'll have use it on my website if you don't mind.

don't ask how we did it but i wish i had the cammera, but we will get better picture of the salvage operation, i hope, LOL

since the ramp boat is made out of 1/4 material we can get rough with it on the salvage.

more to come.

thansk
