Post Your Favourite Answers to Stupid Questions

How fast is it?
How much gas does it burn?
How much does a boat like that cost?
Where's the windshield?
These are the questions I hear the most.

Answers:

100 mph...
Burning gas is cheap...burning engines is expensive.
Boats are cheap...compared to the enjoyment they deliver for the whole family.
There is no stinking windshield...this is a race boat!

And the traditional response to uninitiated first time riders:

Get in, sit down, shut up and hang on.

Personal favorite that I hear at all the boat shows. "Wow.. Girls must really like these big fast boats Huh?"
Responce: Why else would you spend 300K on a floating piece of Fiberglass?

When I tell them how much a boat like this costs they say, "You can buy a house for that much"!
I reply, "Not In my neighborhood you couldn't".

I've got a bunch of "user" relatives. I'm always being asked, "When are you going to take us for a ride"?

Answer: Sure I'll take you for a ride, it will cost 100 bucks an hour from the time the engines turn over.

I usually don't get asked twice in a season from the same relative.
