Journey: Triple L Estate – Cuckold Creek – Forest Landing
Vessel: 18’ Simmons Sea Skiff replica
As I will be towing the skiff to the Chickahominy River tomorrow we needed to get it on the trailer. We had the great nephews for the day and I asked if they wanted to ride along. Since Lori needed to hook up the trailer and go to the ramp I went out to for a short ride up Cuckold Creek before going to Forest Landing.
When we arrived at the ramp I pulled up to the floating side dock and had the kids jump out. Just as I swung around to drive the boat up onto the trailer, an airboat full of people passed by. Although it traveled at a snail’s pace it put out a HUGE wake making it extremely difficult for getting the boat safely on the trailer. Knuckleheads – thanks for nothing.
Even with the tsunami waves we successfully loaded the boat and away we went.
