Default Top 10 Powerboater Lies...

I thought these up while driving the other day. I've used many of them. Feel free to add your own:

10) No honey, I didn't notice that young girl in the thong.

9) ... but blowers will help my fuel economy.

8) Nope. Didn't touch a thing. My boat just started running 10 mph faster.

7) This boat is perfect - I'll never change a thing.

6) Sweetheart, it's like I've been telling you for years, size doesn't matter.

5) I know I'm getting home late. But the police/Coast Guard/Game Warden asked for my help looking for terrorists.

4) We had 4 people on the boat, so we decided to spilt ONE six-pack.

3) I need a bigger boat so my mother-in-law will be more comfortable.

2) I hate going fast - it makes my eyes water.

And the #1 Powerboater lie....

Dude, that Bayliner Rocks!!

Yes, the speedometer is accurate. There is no need for you to pull out your GPS!

I keep telling my parents all that..... Comeon dad, if we get her running 65mph at wot, 5k rpm, that will mean we cruse at our 45mph wot now!!! same speed, less engine wear, and better gas mileage cos lower rpm!!

as for the suddenly going faster.... on my motorized scooter, it just got louder and faster one day, i added a chrome "looks only tube" (tuned pipe) and said i did it for the sound and looks..... a week later i was in the hospital with 2 broken wrists
