People see my boat and ask me if I go fishing, when I tell them that I do not go fishing. he asked why not ......? I always respond as long as restaurants have fish , I have no need to go fishing.......... I wish there was a Red Lobster on the water somewhere.....

I normally get the retarted people that walk up to me and go, My buddy has one of those. Seems like everyone has a buddy with a Power Quest 270 Laser with a custom built 514HP Gellner Engineering built boat. :rollseyes:

Or they usually say their friend has a boat like that one, but in some way it's better than the one you own...

Yes, the old one upper guy or tells you how he could have one, why he is sitting in his bayliner but he just doesn't like paying for the gas or the noise.

I own the launch ramp.. So Im usually the one telling people how to launch and retrieve their boats properly and with coutesey to other boaters.

But I have seen some entertaining shows. The most common are the "forgot the drainplug" or the "forgot the drive was still down" as the skeg gets ground off..

No ramp comments, but last yr while hanging with a bud in his triple 42' Fountain looking at his drives in the trailer position, a not so informed boater asked how many motors it has. hehe
Other than that, we only have smart people here in IN.

I always chuckle when people look at the drives and think they are looking at the motors.
