One thing that many punters do when travelling (including myself) is hopping on board a boat and hopefully not bringing up the entire contents of their stomach if they go out on a boat trip of some kind – for example, fishing for yellowfin tuna, or going for a boat trip to some tropical island to sod around in the sun all day and becoming the next lobster look alike.
Some people are lucky enough to have their own private yacht where they can pretty much drop anchor anywhere in the world, whenever they want! Some day, I might be lucky enough to step on board a metal beast like this!
I have a love/hate relationship with boating. I remember being dragged out by my dad near fishing areas around the Great Barrier Reef in the hot stinking sun all day, and waiting for hours before I received a nibble on the end of my line.
If we managed to catch a great table fish like a Coral Trout, the meal would be worth it! But then again, I’ve had some great boat trip parties that I’ll never forget, so I’m a Yin and Yang kind of guy when it comes to boating.
But hey, walking down towards a marine of moored boats to go on a trip in the outdoors is a much, much better option than being trapped inside the fluorescent prison! Give me that any day, as long as I don’t end up like Tom Hank’s character in the Castaway movie. Or any other Tom Hanks movie involving travel.
So today’s silly post is dedicated to boating jokes and is supported by D’Albora Marinas.

“I finally snapped,” the man said. “Last night while I was going over the bills, I discovered how much money my wife squanders and I hit the roof.” “What did you do?” asked his friend. “I stormed into the bedroom and gave her a lecture on economy and thrift.” “Did it help?” “I’ll say. Tomorrow we’re selling my boat and sailing equipment.”
Q: How many boaters does it take to change a lightbulb? A: None, because the right size bulb isn’t on board, the local marine-supply store doesn’t carry that brand, and the mail-order house has them on back-order.
Q: What’s the difference between a lawyer and a dock line? A: One should be whipped at both ends: the other keeps your boat tied to the dock.

And to add onto the nautical theme, I know of loads of people who own boats seem to like naming their boats with some silly boat names which are a play on words in regards to their floating vessels.
