By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. Some of the biggest arguments I've seen over the years have been at boat ramps. Invariably, it involves a husband and wife trying to back up a trailer. There's the hand gestures, the yelling, and near divorce caused by a lack of communication between the duo and a lack of patience by whoever's behind the wheel. Now, if you're waiting to get into or out of the water and you witness these encounters, it can be very frustrating. But if your my parents, it's great entertainment. While Mom was still alive, Dad would gather her up in their Yukon and head for Anacortes to Washington Park. They'd usually stop at Dairy Queen on the way and get a couple chicken strip baskets and park with a good vantage of the boat ramp. Dad says he can't count how many times he's seen disaster strike. The bickering and fighting between two otherwise loving couples resulting in boats falling off trailers or, even worse, the entire kit and caboodle truck, trailer, boat all ending up in the drink. I highly encourage lots of practice backing a trailer before you ever get to the launch. Until next time, Good Fishing!
