Knowing that we are watched here by our ODNR friends... maybe we could plant some ideas in their heads as to what items would really make launching and loading our boats at public ramps a better experience. I'll start with a few ideas of my own... 1- Lighting a. More of it b. Strategically placed to aid in boat preperation 2- Garbage receptacles a. Numerous containers so as not to overflow b. Placed in area where boats are prepared for towing. 3- Courtesy Docks a. A place for Solo Boaters to keep their boats while parking/retrieving their tow vehicle. b. A place that people could fish from and be out of the way of boaters. 4- Boat Launch Etiquette Signs a. Clearly stating that TOW VEHICLE has right of way. b. Clearly state that the "rampside" of the dock is NOT a place for unattended boats. All boats left unattended should be tied up to the "NON- ramp side of the dock. Would you believe that we had to wait to launch our boat at mosquito lake because someone decided that they wanted to run across the street to buy minnows before he launched????? Oye.. what was he thinking?? lol We couldn't even use the other ramp because sitting in that lane was a woman (holding the boat to the dock with ropes) who was waiting for her husband.. who was parking the car... who had to make multiple trips back to his truck to load his stuff onto the boat... Men.. do us all a favor and TEACH your wives how to launch and load the boat!!!!! :C I am certain that this alone will speed up the launching/loading process.
