Lake Havasu; Site 6. Between the location, "boaters" and peanut gallery, it is perfect live entertainment.

Location is a tight 3 wide ramp. There is no courtesy dock to directly tie off a boat and it is a long, straight shot in with rocks on one side and sheer concrete walkway on the other.
Very high volume of boats since there are almost no marinas or docks on Havasu.

Cheap housing right next to means many of low income, board people seeking cheap entertainment. The sides provide awesome stadium seating as the video shows.

Top it off with ignorant SoCo, flat bill hat wearing wannabe "boaters". They either got their money fast or past their eyeballs in debt posing. Many of the boats are very powerful with cranky motors and quick throttles. Add alcohol and equally annoying plastic women and it is an awesome recipe for hours of entertainment.

I highly recommend a visit

I think this ad will fall into the boat ramp bloopers thread. Take a look at how this thing is loaded on the trailer. I am going to assume the hull is scratched to hell up by the winch and at the back.

That is amazing how many incidents there seem to be at Havasu, site 6. I'm sure there are people out there at every lake, but they seem to be concentrated there, probably bc of the lack of available ramps, I imagine.

There's a bunch of foibles at my most used bought ramp as well - I don't know of any tow vehicle sinks.. but we have I would say as many fails as any boat ramp. The best part is the screaming, arguing, and colorful language after the fail.

Agreed. Makes me want to load a boat there. I'd just back in, clip on, pull out, annnnd done.
