Default Dumb-est question someone has asked you about your boat/ boats in general?

Lets see what we get from this... My friends are usually the ones around my boats and they are pretty smart group of guys, but one day I was at the fuel dock on my skiff and a man walked up to me asking if my skiff had a tiller steer (while I was sitting at the console pumping gas). I dont think the guy was too smart

Whats really funny to me is our inteior meetings contain some of the dumbest.
Try sitting a group of engineers, production people, designers, sales people, bean counters, and marketing people at the same table.

"When are we going out on your boat". This being said by a person who wouldn't give me the time of day before I bought my CC.

I have no time for fools or opportunists.

This was asked of me back in the 70's while I was helping out at the ramp at our marina. The guy had an old Tahiti ski boat with a Mercury o/b on it.

"I've got a dead battery. Can you help me push start it?"

Came around a point on the lake one morning on the Trolling Motor, 2 guy's in a rental boat on the hook....Had to go around them....One guy asked "How do you do that?" Do what was my response......Make boat move without the motor on.......What do you mean???? Your motor is not running, and you are moving and turning.....Pulled the Trolling Motor out of the water for them to see.......Their response.....Well I'll be.......Never seen something like that, how long those been around?

You guy's have a good day. That was in 2003. Thought my partner was going to wet himself......
