LOL...That was me two weeks ago on the Gloucester ramp (weekday though). 1st trip of the season to go for Cod on stellwagon bank. Like a newbie, still half asleep I mistakenly unhooked my safety chain from the bow. Hopped in the boat, my buddy backed me down. click,,,click,,click,click,cl......."SHIIIIIIIT!"
The most helpless feeling....nothing I could do. Sometime during the winter/spring the clicker was released. I lucked out and the boat landed on the skeg and stopped. Cranked it back up and went fishing. Nobody but a guy already in the water saw this.
I use cashmans too just for the fact you mentioned...There usually someone there to organize the chaos.
