What a silly goose, everyone knows the airbags must be deployed in order to act as flotation devices.

Placing blame

Okay, everyone has accused this driver of not being the sharpest crayon in the box, but I figured out what happened. It was the designer of the ramp...it is sloped the wrong way! Duh, we should have spotted that right away!

Always reserve a back in site at the boat ramp, never a pull thru...

I believe he is checking to see if he forgot to put the plug in the boat. That will keep it from taking on water.
