    No need to use the ramp close by, I will just back in on the loose sand, what could go wrong. He was driving a Ford though, so he was a little handicapped to begin with.

    I've learned many lessons in my life, most the hard way.... I think they may have learned a lesson.

    I bet the next time they will ask someone to tow them to the ramp so they can try to avoid another viral Facebook post

    That sand is trucked in, so it's very loose. I can't believe he even made it down to the water.

    Not more than 250 yards from where he's at is a packed gravel ramp that people sometimes use (myself included). All he had to do was walk the boat down the shore to it....guess that was too difficult?

    Please read post 11. This was apparently an act of desperation.

    I read it, they were dumb. Wouldn't have been that hard to swim/walk/paddle that boat down the bank 250 yards.

    I thought it was another "Hold my beer, I'll get the boat".
