Power loading is when a boater remains in their boat and keeps the motor trim low to "power" the boat onto the trailer, vs. using a bow line and the boarding dock to "walk and guide" the boat onto the trailer. Power loading may be faster, but it's costly and impacts everyone who uses the boat ramp. For longer wake board boats that do not have winch mechanisms, operators are strongly encouraged to "bump" the throttle just enough to dislodge the boat from the trailer and shift into neutral quickly to prevent scouring from power loading.
