Default Now THIS was a first

All of us get constant questions about boats when you are trailering - that is a given.

Today though I was at Advance with boat in tow - I like to put the Stabilizer in and then drive 10 or 15 miles to mix it up good. Guy says Is that your boat - I said "yes sir" - he asks if it is a SAIL BOAT!!!!!

I kind of gave him a dumbfounded look while he explained that with the cover on and the cover prop up stakes he thought that might be where the mast went...... I didn't know what to say....?!?!?

A. Guy was at Advance Auto Parts
B. They have that whole isle of idiot accessories (stick on mirrors, stick on fake side grills, flame pin stripes, key hole door protectors)
C. He probably had an armful of bad accessories to go home and put on his 88 Taurus
