Is number 27 optional when my girlfreind is running the boat?

BTW, I almost always were Hawiian shirts on the boat. You can unbutton them to stay cool (literaly) and still not get your back burned up. Also, I figure the loud colors will make me easier to spot in case I make an unscheduled exit from a moving boat!

Oh man, someone pick me up. I'm going to make a steel sign version for our ramp!

Hmmm. Hawiian shirts... with flames to match my babes suit! Maybe not.

Haven't tried Makers Mark...yet. But I do have to go along with the remarks about dropping the Nascar crap. Weekend Nascar fan at minimum?? Last I checked, weekends are for the water. If I have to sit in front of a TV watching good ol' boys drive in circles on one of the two days I don't have to work, I guess I'll never be cool. And that's cool with me.

Everything else is on the money.

Oh! I forgot about the Nascar CRAP. Sorry Rambunctious.

They stole powerboating from my satalite. And that's the only reason I got the damn thing. I don't do ball either. Boating and speed - that "I" can enjoy are my sports!

Eh, maybe burning a little black powder from my flintlock too. Hey, us jarheads just can't go without shooting something.

Ok, off soapbox now. Maybe a sip or two of "Drambuie" to calm me down.

Now this is cool.
I must be a "cool boater".

On a possible top score of 100 (each question being worth 1.851851 points) I rate a 88.888894. I guess that's cool eough.

1. You bet
2. I'm not that big a follower
3. If you count the American flag, ok
4. If Buffet is ok then I'm good
5-10. Got'em all
11. I only have two ski vests besides the regular PFD's
12-18. Got them too
14. F-250
15. That too
16. I wouldn't dare show up at the ramp with a mud covered
truck, that's for rednecks
17-18. Ok
19. My Bimini top won't let it go up any further
20. If you can't speak "boat" you don't belong on the water
21. Yeah
22. If you count the Silent Thunder system as "thru-hull", ok
23. There is no question #23
24. You bet
25. Name not applied to hull
26-28. got'em
29. I wear glasses, no shades available
30-33. Ok
34. It's close, 58+ on GPS
35-41. Good too
42. Don't see too many waves like that on a mid size lake
43. Does the wife count? It better (she says)
44. Wife says "if you take the boat out, I go too!", yes dear
45-46. Absolutely, you never know when you may need assistance
47. If I can't look like a pro when I pull up to the dock, sometings wrong
48. Channel 16 is for emergency use only!!!
49. I always know what the weather is/will be
50. Is there any other speed?
51. I always follow the rules. Hell, I own two of the damn things
52. None of our friends own one of those
53. I hate that kind of people, I always clear the ramp when I'm done
54. Sorry guys, mine's too small

Hey 26 Scarab, # 23 (which is missing) read:

When your tripple axle trailer with a 26 foot boat on it eats a set of bearings on one wheel, you remove that wheel, launch the boat, and get it fixed later. You DO NOT continue down the road and eat the spindle as well!!!!!!

Just kidding Chuck. Sorry to hear about your woes. Looked for you on the water, but didn't see you.
[b]M Go Blue.......Gator boots, gator luggage, gator purses... all at cut rate deals!!!!

How about these for those of us who don't trailer:

Boat should be stored indoors, or at least under cover.
+1 for boathouse or slip with slings or hydrohoist.
-10 for bottom paint.
+1 for locked garage or completely indoor dry stack facility.
+1 for getting your marina to customize the rack bunks and/or forklift for your step hull.
+1 for cool dock box with boat name/manufacturer or racing stickers.
+10 for converting your covered dock at the marina into a party pad. (That's for some friends of mine down here who have actually done that. We had a Super Bowl party at the marina!)
