Lol, Years ago I backed a friends 25' or 30' boat trailer in for him to load and before the boat was on the trailer I had 3 people ask me if I could back there's in for them. I would have but that was one of my first times backing in a trailer so I just told them I got lucky and didn't want to push my luck with someone else's stuff.

Go to about the 6 minute mark. The guy who moderates is a jerk so you can keep the volume down.

I returned a UHaul trailer a few years back. They asked if I could back the trailer into a spot they had for it. I did it nice and easy, so easy they asked if I could move 4 other trailers for them. I had the time so I helped.

The moderator isn't a jerk, I watch his videos all the time, maybe the boat owner should go to a big parking lot and practice there with cones set up, maybe even watch some youtube videos or take some advice, I totally understand wanting to learn yourself but if you don't know what you are doing wrong, how do you correct it.

the local boat ramp is the absolute worst place to learn/practice how to reverse a boat. most people grossly overcorrect when they are first learning and it's hard to watch and even harder when you're waiting in line.

You are right Puttin, he is a jerk of the highest order. Yelling at people and making fun of them.

That driver could not even hear him, and he has walked over and helped many boat owners when they are willing to accept the help, it sounds like this driver didn't want help, he turned it down once already. You posters that are calling him a jerk are watching a few minutes of his content and judging him, he isn't being a jerk. I can watch 10 minutes of your life and come to the conclusion that you are a jerk. My son (he was 7 or 8) once told me something 20 yrs ago, I was driving with him in the truck and got cut off, I said out loud "what an idiot", he turned to me and said "Dad, we can all be idiots". By the way you can watch about 90 seconds of my life and determine I am a jerk. A public boat ramp is not the place to learn how to back a good size boat with a small car.

That other boater offered to help but got turned down. That guy was either drunk or on something. When he got out and kicked the tires and gesticulated strangely there was no doubt. Nobody is that bad.

That boater is lucky he never was able to launch, because for sure he would never have been able to retrieve!
