Boaters Should Avoid Power Loading

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon State Marine Board is asking boaters to avoid power loading during low water at reservoirs. Power loading is when the boat's motor is used to push the boat onto the trailer. The prop wash causes the dirt to wash out from under the end of the boat ramp. The concrete cracks and breaks apart. They want boaters to kill their motors and use a bow line and winch to get their boat on the trailer.
