What kind of boat is it? ( IT'S WRITTEN ON THE SIDE OF THE BOAT)
Can you talk through the speakers like a PA? (no but thanks for the idea)
Nordicron can.
I get a lot of age and engine related questions. Also, when the t-top was on,
What's with the spoiler? And, Do you race that thing?

One guy asked how it handles and didn't hang on as instructed. Got thrown around and broke his nose on the windshield. He was considerate enough to lean out on the idle home so he wouldn't bleed on the boat.

Yes, they employ the most intelligent people...especially up north.

We were getting gas in the BF200 at a BP in a small town one Saturday morning in the summer and we went into the little store area to get some ice and snacks for the kids...when we came out, there were people standing around the side of the boat taking pictures, etc.

When we got closer to the boat, people started asking for our autographs and asked if we were going to be on any of the lakes in the area during the day...we had no clue what was going on...then someone asked which world records our boat pulled...???

On the back sides of the boat, we have the stickers "World Record Ski Boat"...so to say the least, we were all celebrities for 10 minutes!

I get a lot of age related questions. When I tell them it's an '83 or 30 years old, they usually look like this and then say what a great looking boat it is.

I have to agree

Pulled in to a boat mechanic's lot that I had not used before with my old MC.

Boat Mechanic: Is that a jet boat?

Me: No. See the propeller.

Boat mechanic: Scratches head.

Me: Shaking head as I drive away with boat still attached to truck.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

"Where is the engine?"

My favorite:
Idiot: "What's that thing for?". Idiot redneck pointing at back of boat below swimd deck.
Me: "Steering". Describing the function of a rudder.

My 2 most often are

Do you do a lot of fishing?
Do you go to Lake Erie?

The Erie question always gets me because it would be a terrible lake to use and as soon as I say no, people lose interest.

Yeah, I get that Lake Erie question a lot too. I agree, not my boat.

It always caught my attention when people would call it a speedboat.

Me: Do you get out on the lake very often?
Friend: yea every once in a while on John's speedboat.
Me: you mean his X25?
