Did you ever want a sailboat ? LMAO!

You all can look at the bottom of my post and see my most frequently asked dumb question, so often that it has turned into a joke with all my boating friends

among the dumbest I have been asked are: "where are the rod holders?" "Is it yours?" ........"all of it?", also asked was asked once if it was a race boat (NO) well then why does it say CIGARETTE RACING TEAM if you dont race? and the best one was when I was I pulled into a marina of a strictly fishing and pontoon lake to use the jon, and was asked by an old man "why arent there any motors on it?" I guess he never saw anything but an eggbeater in his life.

How fast does it go?
How much fuel does it hold?
How much to fill it up?
How long does a tank of gas last?
How much is it?
Can I go for a ride sometime?
You actually trailer that thing?
What do you pull it with?
She actually knows how to drive it?
How many does it sleep?
How many people does it hold?

And many others I can't remember at this time

"What's a boat like that cost?" I usually say "it's all relative, buddy"

A bagger in the grocery store said to a friend of mine at the checkout line, "It's about time someone started standing up for us smokers. Awesome T-shirt man!"

I think you can guess what shirt my friend was wearing. And this was AT THE LAKE. No excuse.

This probably isn't too stupid since hardly anyone has heard of my boat, last weekend at the gas dock it went like this...

Guy: Man, nice looking boat
Me: Thanks, I like it alot
Guy: What kind is it?
Me: Well, it's a Prototype
Guy: Oh, what's it a prototype of?
Me: That's actually the manufacturer. That's who built it.
Guy: Huh, ummm so maybe Mercury?
Me: No, it has a mercury motor in it though, but Prototype is the manufacturer.
Guy: I wonder what it's a prototype of?
Me: Um....well it's like this....uh... ya know, I don't know what it's a prototype of. See ya later.
