When I had my 40' Hustler back in 1994, I had a lady walk over to me at the gas docks and say: "Looks like drug money to me."

Thumbs down Re: The DUMB things people say to you at the boat ramp!!!!!!!

How much gas does that hold?

How much does it cost to fill the tank?

How far can you go before you have to fill it?

Don't you wish you had a smaller boat now?

Exactly... Do you ski behind that thing??

Ever do any fishing?
Where the heck do you run something that big?
Why would you need to go that fast?

What's wrong with the mufflers, why's it so loud?

How fast is it? And when you tell them they usually go.. Oh, that's all?Thought it'd be faster.
So now I just make up some outrageous speed.

Since that encounter I have thought of many things I could have said, but I was so unprepared for such an ignorant statement I just looked at her with my best "Are you kidding?" look.
