Default How Do You Define A Googan?

Lots of different examples out there, but this one gets my vote. You gotta look cool when running the inlet...no matter what...

First boat in the vid.


Maybe they just overlooked the latch thingy.

Fenders hanging while underway is the easiest way to spot for me

Mainly anyone who doesn’t run boats for a living is considered one OP.

I don't run boats for a living, but I do live to run boats. Does that make me 50% Googan.

The stern-heavy boats at 3:00 Are the real googans...

Regardless of whether the cowling was secured properly, why do people run like that and beat the shite outta your boat? Just doesnt make sense to me..

Anyone not exactly like the person calling them a googan would be my guess.

Everyone has had a Googan moment. Those who say they have not, are liars.

I like the Sun Runner @ 2:04 with the anchor swinging all over the place. There had to be some damage after that.

Yankee living in Florida = 90% of the way to being a googan.

That's some salty water getting all up in those unprotected engines. I wondered what condition they were in after that episode.

Commercial guys down here have the same thought process. Instead of googans they just call them sports or sporties. Usually the guys fishing in the sand.

Oh, sporties! Yeah, that's what our commercial guys call any non-commercial fisherman also.

So basically everyone here would be a sporty, or "googan".

We call our commercial fishermen "commies".
