Default You might be a boater if.......

Akin to you might be a redneck if.......

I thought of this while doing a home repair project this weekend.

You might be a boater if.......you attempt to repair a cracked fiberglass bathtub with 5200.

................you used a Rule Automatic bilge pump in your basement, when the floor drain backed up due to high ground water.

................you convinced yourself that you really did need a "teak" toilet seat.

................you buy ONLY stainless steel hardware.

...moan and groan about the price of gas for your car, but not think twice about spending $200 to fill the boat.

This is the best thread I have seen in awhile! I spit my beer out when I read the one about the NOAA report and making appointments.

--- You use 150lb rated snap swivels to replace the button that fell off of your pants and/or shorts...

--- You are driving down the road and will speed up just to take a look at the boat thats a few car lengths ahead.. Not because you necessarily like the boat, but because it is a boat, and you wanna look at it.

--- You are driving down the road with you girlfriend and you see a boat in the distance and accurately name the make, model, and engine manufacturer before you even get a good look at it and it is too far away to read a name or engine make on it.. Your g/f then proceeds to call you a dork..

Congratulations, you qualify for the coveted "redneck / boater" comboaward

.........you have an old dingy/rowboat in your yard that's used as a planter.

.........your basement or garage looks like a West Marine store.
