Thinking specifically about Whittier, but would apply anywhere. I always have some last minute prep to do on my boat before launching such as putting out fenders, putting on dock lines, etc., so I'm always getting into the ready line for this. If someone drives in from the tunnel and is all ready to launch, then what's the proper thing for him to do? Stop and ask the person in front of the ready line if he minds if he goes on ahead and launches? If the guy at the front of the ready area says ok, then is it ok for the guy who just drove up to launch his boat if others in line behind the first guy in line are ready and waiting their turn? If I'm in line and am ready to launch and the person(s) in front of me are still getting ready, I'll ask them if they mind if I go ahead and that seems to work out fine. But I'm specifically wondering about the situation where someone passes up the ready line and heads directly to the launch ramp.
