Cool

My wife is loving and gorgeous too, I just have a hard time loading the boat at an angle with the nose of the boat facing the side view of the truck on the ramp.

There's no way she'll read this

I'm going to have alot females at me

I usually reply with " That is a good amount for down payment, care to order one?"

The most frequent one I use is,
" Enough to make my banker happy"

Another I have used "Depends if you are buying or Gawking?"
Buyers get a 10%discount,Gawkers get a 20% price hike "

When someone asks how much it costs, I take the price of the boat, lets say I paid $50,000 for it, and put $20,000 on both ends. So my response would be " More than $20,000 and less than $70,000." If they push the issue after that I just repeat it over & over until they get the message. It works for me !
