I was in a club one night with a Cigarette shirt on and I was approached by a few "cuban" looking guys and they asked me if I owned a Cigarette and then asked me if I used it as a "workboat"

So this guy comes in again yesterday. I was looking at a boat on the Lip-Ship site.

He says, "I still can't believe there is nowhere for a trolling motor." I said, "your in the wrong sport."

He says, "terrible gas mileage."
I said, "Nah, it only has 525's so it probably does ok. "

He then says, " So whats the fastest these things get to, 80-90mph?"

So I show him this and politely say, "a little quicker than that."

I was towing my Pantera back from Florida and stopped for fuel in South Carolina at 2am. and there was a Sheriff in the gas station and he asked me where i was going? I said New York, at which time he asked do you have many rivers to run that thing on up there in NY.. I told him just a few,have you ever heard of the atlantic ocean?

At the launch ramp at the Eastside Poker Run earlier this year a fisherman was standing there watching National Marine launch their Outerlimits, they fired the beast up and backed it off the trailer and the fisherman asked me how fast it was, I told him probably close to 100 (wild guess ) he says "MAN THAT THING MUST HAVE A CORVETTE MOTOR IN IT" , I politely replied " They are most likely a lot bigger than that" he says, "NO!, I know what a Corvette motor sounds like and that is definately a Corvette motor" I didnt have the heart to tell the old guy that the motors were probably twice the size (if not bigger) than any Corvette motor and that the boat had TWO MOTORS.


I love it when people dont have a clue about performance boats, but yet try to argue about them

I sold a boat for a friend of mine, since hi is at sea on a cruiseliner. This boat i s a yamarin with 115yamaha out board.

Those who bougt this boat didnt want to test it when they picked it up at my place.. I gave them my phone nbr if something was wrong with the boat when they was going to put it to sea someday.

Then one sunday morning, the new owner called me up and said hi had put the boat to sea, but it did not want to start..

I replyed with :did you hooked on the cables to the batery??

Hi said Baterys ???? is it batery operated?????

I have since then regreted that I gave them my phone nbr

We had my buddies Cigarette parked at an apartment complex. We were both at the pool with Cigarette hats on, and an old lady came up yelling at us because we were condoning smoking! She thought it was one big billboard!!! I have had too many stupid questions about the Apache to even get started. Cigracer, I am sure you have heard a few of them.
