[B]This morning a guy here at the office looked at my wallpaper on my computer and said, "wow, is that a Cobalt?"

LOL. Speaking of Cobalt, they have a new "Offshore" style boat coming out that I assume will debut in 04. It's a 34 foot TANK, and I spotted it a grand lake a few weekends ago with no lettering. It had twin 496's in it and they say it will run low 70's. I have a few "spy" photos at home. It's not pretty.

I get the same basic questions on my Top Gun, but usually grin and give a somewhat evasive answer:

Q How much does it cost?
A Well I'll put it to you this way, I could be on heroin and it would be cheaper.

Q How much fuel does it burn:
A A little more than you'd expect and a lot less than I'd expect.

Q What do you call that small (Covergirl) cabin?
A A stabbin' cabin.
Q Why, was someone stabbed in there?
A Yes, you could say that.

Q How fast does it go?
A I'm not sure, but one day I'm going to figure out how to get this thing past half throttle.

And my favorite:
Q Can you give me and my (incredibly hot) girlfriend a ride?
A Yes, but I'm afraid you won't be making it back.

Question: Do you ever fish off it?
Response: The only fish they touch this boat are the ones that die when they hit the hull at full throttle!

this is kind of related, I was at the local conveniance store the other day filling up the gas tank on my boat, it took about 150 bucks, the girl inside asked how much something like that cost, I told her about 100 grand. she said thats obserd , do you know what you could do with that kind of money, I would never spend that kind of money on a boat. I said don't worry something tells me you will never be faced with that delema.

one more, I was hammering across the lake in my eliminator in some huge waves at full speed, I hit some really hard and the whole back of the boat blew off, my whole swim deck was floating in peices in the lake. an older man with his family made it a point to drive all the way across the lake while i was in the water picking up the pieces and said , you where going kinda fast wern't you? and then drove off.

Q: where do you race that thing?
A: Huh?
Q: It says Cigarette Racing Team on it.

Q: Is that Boat a World Champion?
Me: This boat?
Q: It says world Champion right there!!

Qoes that thing burn alot of gas?
Me: I don't know yet, I just bought it.
Q:Your going to be sorry!

A little girl and her mother were walking by my house and I was outside waxing the boat. The lady asks me if the girl can ask me a question and I say sure. She says " Do rockets come out of those 4 thingies in the back?" I said no, just alot of noise and money!

And the last one a little fat kid (about 8 years old)comes strolling by and says "How much does this boat cost" I say "It's not for sale" he says "whats it worth" and I say "250 thousand " He says"I'm gonna send my dad over, he'll take it" I say " it's not for sale but I have a nice boat for sale for 20 thousand" he says" no my dad is gonna want this one"

Oh yeaa, two different people in two different states asked me if I was a drug dealer. I told both of them that I wasn't but my boss is and he's making me tow this boat for him.
