The other thing solo boaters do is reach the water, and then realize they don’t have a plan. There are two options here, and your pick should be made before you ever back down. Are you going to slowly drift the boat off the trailer with or without a rope? Or, are you going to climb into the boat, fire it up, reverse of the trailer, and drive to a secure tie-up location? If you arrive near the water and you haven’t made that decision, then you are probably “that” person I am referring to. It’s fine if you have to detach just the front winch before backing in the last 5 feet, but it’s not OK if you back right next to the water and you haven’t put the drain plug in, the back latches are still on, you fiddle with the light posts, forget to attach the kill switch, and you decide that’s the best time to put the ice in the cooler.
