It's the "usually" part of your statement that brings back my own memories and gave me a chuckle!

I have to give my wife credit, though. When we met, she was brand new to boating and I was doing the truck side and the boat side. She slowly got her feet wet in the sport and eventually elected to do the boat side of launching/retrieving, leaving the truck side for me. I gotta admit - even with our 260DA, we are usually one of the fastest loaders (unloading is a no-brainer) at the ramp. But, there have been some windy days were the guide poles would have taken a little of the stress away.
