DO NOT back your rig up onto the ramp and begin to....
1. Load the boat with your guns, shell bags, or food.
2. Get dressed.
3. Put your waders on.
4. Put the plug in the boat.
5. Put on face paint.
6. Take the strap off your boat.

I know you heard my b*$%#ing towards you while sitting in the boat waiting to load.
All of the above should be completed in the parking lot prior to backing onto the ramp.
FYI.. you also reverse the procedure when you are ready to pull your boat out of the water.

To top it off, they will do this in the center of a two lane ramp.

This is one area where duck hunters could definitely learn a lesson from bass fisherman. Fifty tournament bass fishermen can trailer their boats in a matter of minutes, but it takes some duck hunters a half hour to just get one boat put in or pulled out.

You should also add:
-Don't sit there calling your fine retriever while he's roaming about the parking lot and bowed up dropping a deuce on the dock.
