What did you get George for Christmas?

A boat.

Very nice! Does George know anything about boating?

Apparently not....

I told you before. WHen you park at the top of the ramp to unlash the boat:

1) Park with the boat down the ramp ahead of the truck.
2) Put the parking brake on, and PUT IT IN FIRST GEAR.

OK, the other funny one today was the lady that failed to unstrap the trailer from the boat when she went for a ride.

Given: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Therefore, when a truck pulls a boat the boat is pulling with an equal and opposite force.
Question: Why do people use trucks to pull boats and not boats to pull trucks?

That was a hypothetical question.

Hey Fred, I know that the truck can pull the boat out of the water but don't think that it'll work the other way around....

How to trash a truck engine in one easy step.

(Note that ingesting water through the air intake will generate a water locked entine. Must be disassembled, dried and oiled before there is any chance of getting it working again. Typically you just need a new engine).
