You have NO idea how hard I've been laughing at some of these questions. I don't claim to be an expert by any means, but geez, were some of these people on vacation the day common sense was handed out?

I have an Advantage Boats, 34 Offshore. It is plainly visible on the side of the boat near the gunnels...big letters.

I was tied up in the courtesy slips at Highport Marina, Lake Texoma. A gentleman walks up and looks the boat over admiring it and asks "That's a Baja isn't it?"

Dirt Bag in a POS fishing boat as I pull up to the dock:

What happened to your windshield?

Me: It doesn't have one.

DB: Yeah, what happened to it?

Me: It didn't come with one, kinda like a race boat.

DB: Why would you buy a boat without a windshield?

Me: What happened to all your fish?

DB: ???? with dumb look and mouth open as I walked away, shaking my head.

As I just got done firing up my Velocity @ the boat lauch a women comes up to me.

Her: Do you need some leeches

I look back into the boat and back at her.

Me: No but my Dr. says I should try that next.

Her: Oh really what for?

Me: Herpes.

Her: Really!? Wow, never heard of that.

She then went over to another boat.

Her: Need any leeches? They cure herpes!

The guys on the boat got a really digusted look on their face. I wasn't sure if she was joking or really believed me, but the smell of booze weed smoke gave me a pretty good idea. WTF would I need with leeches???????

I was asked by a guy who saw the Cigarette sticker on my truck window:
him> WHAT! do you smoke?
him>well then WTF is Cigarette Racing Team?
me>its the name of a boat builder
him> but it says RACING TEAM!
at this point I decided to have a little fun
me> yes it is an offshore racing team
him>WTF is offshore racing?
me> its where you take 30 to 50ft. boats that go 70 to 200mph and beat the snot out of them in 6 ft. waves and the first one across the line wins

him (with a befuddled look on his face) > YEAH RIGHT! ANY BOAT WOULD SINK IN THOSE KIND OF WAVES, WHAT ARE YOU STUPID?
me> have a nice day!

I love messing with stupid people, its fun
