He have a 23' AS and ferries are a part of our lives living as we do in the Canadian Gulf Islands.
Tides go up and down as they are wont to and the first time at low tide we looked at the off ramp and all I could think of was the black and gray water pipes by the AS bumper- " There gonna come off for sure!" I thought.
As we pulled off, we heard a grind, saw a little puff of dust in the rear view mirror " Ohhhh sh*t" I said ..... Got off the ferry and pulled over. Lo and behold, no damage at all! Two skid plates welded onto the end of the frame took the blow - no damage at all. We dont worry now.
