I was at a gas station with our 38 TG TS on the trailer filling up the truck and I look over at a guy with a tape measure trying to measure the boats length and I say to the guy "What the hell are you doing?"

The guy replies " this thangs got to be 25... feet long!!!"

He then proceeded to explain to me that he had a 20' boat and my boat had to be bigger than that.

I hATE it when people call them Cigarette boats or racing boats.IT IS A CIGARETTE or a RACE BOAT!!!!!!! Or when you got a speedo that says 120 and kids think the boat will go 120. Or when you have an old schoo, one that says 2,3,4,7,9,10. And the kids think it only goes 12. I am a kid but a smart one (in boats anyway )

We snapped a propshaft on our left Bravo 1 during a poker run 2 years ago and hobbled back to the launch ramp. Once the boat was on the trailer at the start of the ramp, with CLEARLY no prop and shaft visible on the left side, someone watching said "Why aren't you guys running?"

Dumbest thing i ever heard at a dock ramp was when one of my friends was helping someone unload their little sea-ray - like a 19 footer:

"go ahead and unhook the winch and the safety line, then i'll back it into the water"

"you sure about that?"

"that's how i always do it, it'll be fine"

Followed shortly by the most entertaining thing i've seen at the launch ramp... CRUNCH... with the stern a good 10 feet from the water line. We had him back the trailer up into the boat and push it into the water. He probably left 5 pounds of fiberglass on the launch ramp. he still went for a ride.

I'm guilty about lying about the speed too. But my boat only does 60ish, so i tell them 75, 80.
