I get this one all the time from chicks in thongs with big tits:

"How 'bout I work your throttle while you're workin' the throttles?"

After a day of boating my girlfriend and I were washing/detailing the boat and trailer out in the street in front of my house. A couple walk by and the wife mutters, "why even bother washing it, it goes in the water anyways". We both looked at each other and rolled our eyes.

this was my favorite, I pulled into the docks at a resteraunt at ft myers beach and a chick sitting at a table said look there out in daddy's boat. I turned around and said no daddy couldn't afford one of these.

Was doing some prop testing out in front of my marina, two buddies were in one of the restuarants on the water front having dinner,,, a couple of guys sitting next to them in the bar were commenting on how nice it must be to be driving around in Daddy's boat,

Our place on Lake Huron is in a pretty small town, (the family tree here has no branches). The typical trailer boat is a 19 ft. fish boat, so when we launch the 46 it usually attracts a group of experts.

Yeah,we get all the insightful questions mentioned so far. But what really seems to get these guys is the sight of my 5ft wife driving this rig that's as long as a semi to the ramp while I handle the lines. The look on their faces is priceless.

I've also been informed as I fired up 2000 hp that it's too loud and someone is going to call the cops. That's when my buddy shows them his sheriff badge.

I had a guy pull next to me at a stop light while trailoring the boat.

He looked at me and said "boats like that suck".

I replied "your Mother sucks too, but that didn't keep me from riding her".

Then I just drove off...

Im in the same boat. My dad was trying to be funny one day at the docks, there were a bunch of girls around and he yelled at me, son be careful with my boat. its pretty tough to overcome that one, so i said, dad im kind of nervous you go ahead and back your boat in. the look on his face was priceless. he hasnt tried that chit again.
