Might be A River Boater



Update to "You Might Be a River Boater"


Hey Bill,

Been a while since anyone added to the list, so I thought I’d send a few new ones:

  • If you walk “up” the ramp going “to” your boat…….

  • You can water ski simply by idling upriver……

  • You check on River Bill’s for the river stages several times a day even though you know it hasn’t dropped much……

You Might Be A River Boater If:


  • You think $3/gal for gas is a great deal

  • You have $15k worth of electronic navigation gear but you never leave the Alton pool

  • You think "size" matters

  • You spend thousands of $$ on an activity you get to do a most weekends during a 6 month period each year

  • Your beer cooler might bigger than your gas tank

  • You can back a boat trailer but can't parallel park

  • You know what "SPF" stands for

  • You could, in a pinch, use your gold chain for an anchor (oops, that would be a "lake boater, sorry...)

  • You have used something called "bilge soap"

  • You use the terms "port" & "starboard" while driving your car

  • The first thing you look at in the paper each day is the river stage

  • And last but not least, you might be a boater if you ever had a fight with your spouse, stormed out of the house and spent the night on the boat!!
