You do not take that out here do you?
Where can you go that fast?
Have you actually gone that fast?
How can you afford the gas?
All time dumbest is "Can you give me a ride?"

Had an avid fisherman tell me he didn't see the "point" of a go-fast boat. Thought that was an awful lot of money to spend to just buzz around from place to place. I told him I didnt see the point of his large sportfish, custom rods, paid crew,

and catch and release...

A woman asked my wife if we really took a 30' boat" ALL THE WAY to Block Island", "thats kind of small isn't it?" (her quotes)

The Cigarette thing has now become a joke with my friends, I don't even have to say it anymore they all say it for me, "it's not a Cig it's a Sonic!"

While my brother in law was being written up by a young marine patrol officer in his 29 fountain with a 500 EFI, the cop was looking at the engine and asked him if it was an Evinrude. We still laugh about that.

From a busty young lady in a skimpy bikini during spring break, "Excuse me, do you think your wife would mind if you took me for a ride?"

My reply would have been, "my grandfathers staion wagon has a lot more seats, why didn't you buy a staion wagon instead of that BMW?"

It wasn't really a question, but one day a nice old lady was walking around the neighborhood when I was working on the boat. She said "that's a nice boat" then as she walked in front of it said "oh, it's a pontoon boat." I just smiled and said thanks. I didn't have the heart to tell her it's a Skater...
