This isn't so much as a stupid thing but, when I had my Mirage I was backing it out of the boat launch when an older gentlemen with guests in an older restored Cobalt said "hey thats a really nice boat". I barely heard him over the exhaust. Instead of being a snob or stuck up SOB, I said to "it is not nearly as nice as yours, you own a Cobalt" It gave him the biggest smile, and made him look good in front of his guests.

That is one of my favorite moments boating.

You will always have your morons, but I just think it is better to educate them than to humilate them.

I just remembered this one.

These 2 guys drive by me last year in our party cove.

One guy yells, "HEY! Is that a Fountain?"
I say, "No"
His buddy punches him on the arm (hard) and says, "Hahaha you dumbass, I told you it's a BAJA!!!!!!!!"

Default classic WTF

maximus at the boat ramp In all her glory .

Guy walks up with smokin girlfriend. (know it all type)

now, I must say I'm very cool with most people because they have never seen this type of boat before.

Just didn't have Patience that day.

Is it fast?.......

I turn my head and look at Maximus on the trailer. Looked back at them (his chick looked at me with an
"I'm not with stupid" face)

I looked back at the boat, looked back at him. He answered his own question got uncomfortable and left.

Maximus

Due to some comments by the "geriatric set" around my dock, I now have a sign on the dock that sez

"If it's too loud, then you are too old!! "

I haven't had a remark made since putting that up!

LOL Shane---oh man that was good!

we were race patrol again this year at the grand haven races. 3 high school buddies join me once a year on my boat for this event.
we were patrolling before the race and one anchored spectator boat captain said " ask that guy what he wants for his boat" he pointed at the 38 donzi for sale who was also a race patrol and stationed next to me. so when i cruised by the donzi i said. "that guy is interested in your price"

the young captain said 87. i asked "with a trailer" he said "no, but a shore station."

as we trolled back to relay the message. my buddy said
$8,700.. ??

i politely said " no, $87,000."

it was an aukward kind of silence.........
i did get $50 in gas money that day!!!!!!!
I think i'll invite them again next year....
