Subject: The IRS and the boat owner

 
The IRS suspected a fishing boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his deckhand and sent an agent to investigate him. 
 
IRS AUDITOR: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them." 
 
BOAT OWNER: "Well, there's Clarence, my deckhand, he's been with me for three years. I pay him $1,000 a week plus free room and board. 
 
"Then there's the mentally-challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Bacardi rum and a dozen Budweisers every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally." 
 
IRS AUDITOR: "That's the guy I want to talk to - the mentally-challenged one." 
 
BOAT OWNER: "That would be me. What would you like to know"?

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

A boat is a hole in the water into which one throws money.

No lie, I was shopping boats as part of my renewed interest in fishing and a little guy that my wife and I could use on one of Arizona's many big lakes starts at $25K and goes up to my gag price of $40K.

Of course, our new Ford Escape in titanium trim would have to be able to tow it up the mountains.

They make jet skis designed for fishing now. Lots of people are going to paddle boards and kayaks. People are even catching billfish and sharks on them.

I'll stay on the boat, thanks.

This guy was two miles offshore with a shark on his line... in an inflatable pool toy. Who needs a boat?

This could be genuine, but it looked like the rod the guy in the inflatable was using was exactly like some of the ones on the boat.  Kinda makes you go HMMMMM!
