Here's a good story. There is a restaurant at my marina. It's really kind of crapy but they charge high prices and think they're all that.

Last year, the first day I had my boat in the water I was running it at the dock to check for leaks, set timing and idles etc. before the maiden voyage.

The hostess comes walking down the dock and ask's Lucididee if we're going to be here for a while because it's really loud. Lucididee turns around to the girl and says; "Yes, we're going to be here ALL SEASON!"

Dee, that was f'ing great!!!


Another time, after a long day of boating and consumption. I'm hanging out at the restaurant bar in the marina. One of the douche bag boat owners from the other dock, half in the bag, comes over to me and starts yelling and saying, "it's too loud and everyone at the marina needs to listen to me when I rev. my engines." I turned around to the guy and said, "It's a marina full of speed boats, get used to it!" The guy never said anything else to me for the rest of the season.


I also saw a similar situation some guy came over to this boaty guy`s boat and started to b!th to him about the motor noise his boat was making. this great guy [in a phanton I think] did not say a word to the complaintent , he just walked up to his controls and fired up the other nice motor in his boat and looked at dumb but and smiled

"your boat is sinking" said by tons of people

where are the motors? asked by some old timer

goin fishin? asked by an old timer with an evil grin on his face

WOW a real Cigarette boat by a group of young guys

How much does that cost? usually asked by a bayliner owner

how fast does it go? asked by the amish kid who made the canvass.........my answer: well there are 650 horses under that hatch it goes pretty fast.

Mr. Porter how many firearams do you have on board today? asked by the U.S. Coast Guard.....hmmm they know me too well

Are you a drug dealer? asked by many.....no I cook rocks and paint them black for a living.

Some car gear-head comes up to me and says "is that a 454?"

I tell him politely that it is 600cu. in.

Trying to sound smart he says, "Is that a 454 PUNCHED?"

Just to make him feel good I said ,"Sure is."

One day (when I owned my 22-foot Crownline with a Whipplecharged 502) a guy came up to me and asked, "Does it have a big block"?

I said, "It has a 502."

He said, "Oh, too bad it's not a big block."

I said, "What do you consider a big block?"

He said, "A 454."

I said, "Well, I have a 502.".

He just looked at me with a deer-in-the-headlights look.

Funny when I went out for a few rides with Blond Cig Chick in Cali at every dock people would ask me about Ruckus. I always said I have no idea about the boat you should talk to the owner and point to BCC. The looks on their faces was priceless.
