How You Can You Spot A New Boater Owner....


  1. Yeah he is. Bet he won't park it like that again :)

  2. Years ago, my friends and I boated every weekend. It was somewhat of a ritual. We all lived on and had grown up on the lake so were very comfortable in our boating endeavors. If things got boring, we'd go to one of the local public boat ramps and watch the lowlanders (that's what we called the folks that came up from Atlanta with their fancy schmansy boats that had to be loaded and unloaded from their trailers) muck things up badly. I wish video cameras had been more common back in the day as we saw some funny shit. People with all that money sometimes don't have too much sense. The local Atlanta stations got wind of these funny instances and I can't remember the reporters name, but he was funny as shit and caught a bunch on camera.

  3. I worked at a boat rental concession on a lake in California as a teenager. The boat launch ramp was just off to the side of our dock, and was a perpetual source of entertainment! People would launch boats they hadn't run in two years and expect everything to be hunky-dory. Some forgot to set the e-brake on the truck. Many more forgot to put the drain plug in before launching the boat. Then there were those long-dormant engines. I don't know how many people came up to us with styrofoam cups asking us for some gas to prime their engines. We'd say "OK. Hold tat cup tight" as we'd pour the gas in, where it would immediately dissolve the bottom of the cup and pour straight through. Imagine their surprise!

    ...Ahh, yes... Good times...

  4. I have a boat, and even when I'm not doing stupid stuff like that poor goon, the damn thing is still a money sucking whirlpool.

    But you all must admit, the goon hung in there like a trooper.

    1. A boat is a hole in the water into which one pours money.

      The happiest days of a boat owner's life; the day he buys the boat, and the day he sells it...
