Here's a good one. Do you ski behind that? No! What do you do in it then? I just cruise and drink beer.

How big of gas tank? I tell them it has two and they can't comprehend that and their size.

Fishing comes up? I say F that and how about going fast instead?

How fast will it go? I tell them and their mind is boggled and then they say no way not me, isn't that a little fast on water? If it's faster than skiing speed, then it makes no sense.

That thing has two motors? How big? They are mesmorized when I tell them.

between boating on a small local lake and always filling at gas stations Ive heard them all.

where are the motors on that...some old guy at a truck stop

do you race? NO then why does it say racing team? .well its a brand nam.....oh nevermind

cant you just turn one motor off to save gas $$?...Ive heard that one more times than I can remember

thats nice and all, but my dads brothers cousins boss has one that is bigger

cant you shut those loud things off until you get away from the dock? ........ummm by rowing or what

why is the front closed off?

how fast does it go? and how many hp does that take?......asked by an amish guy...now how the hell can he relate to something that goes 65mph or fathom how I can fit 650 horses inside the back part

and the number one question I am asked can be seen as my signature..

I also get a lot of...OH you have a Cigarette boat..cool...what kind is it? I hear Fon-tain is the best kind............um look man its a Cigarette.........yeah but what kind?

I had one guy at the ramp ask if I would take him and his girl out with me for the day, serious, He said he would pay for the gas, I said OK , that will be $400.00. He did not say another word. Would have taken the girl for FREE!!

I have a cat and I always get at filling stations on the road, "Is that a cigarette boat"......Anymore I just tell them yes so I don't have to explain it to them.

We've had our's about a year now and can see what we have to look forward to. The two we get the most are,

"Hey that thing gotta Hemi in it" my wife generally yells back "Nope...................It's got TWO"

and "Man, it must cost a fortune to fill that thing up!" using this post to figure out a good come back
