Geez....that really is heartbreaking. I must say, the tone of your post leads me to believe you are handeling this well. So sorry for your loss.

I can relate though. to make a long story long I once left the dealer with a brand new boat and headed for the ramp pronto. Prepared everything and proceeded to back down. Having already unhooked like I did a thousand times before with previous boat. Once I crested the top of the ramp she slid off the trailer like a greased pig and crashed on the pavement.. The momentum continued to almost the water level (30ft or so) grinding down the hull/lower unit the whole way. It was a mess. The shock was unbelievable.
