    I want to warn everyone about a new theft scam sweeping my area that targets men doing do-it-yourself boat maintenance.

    Don't think this clouldnt happen to you.

    When you are alone, working on your boat, two bikini wearing girls approach, claiming they love boats and find boat mechanics sexy.

    They keep getting closer and closer while you are working on your boat. As one of them starts running their hands up and down the front of your body from your shoulders to your legs, the other one does the same on your backside as she steals your wallet. I should know, had my wallet stolen this way on Saturday, again on Monday, twice Tuesday and hopefully again this afternoon. By the way, Walmart has men's wallets on sale.

    You've been warned.

    Hell, if they want to climb down in the bilge and change the plugs, they can have my wallet. Besides I've already spent my money buying parts.

    I think a variation of this was one of the first jokes in the jokes thread - still funny as hell though:D

    A lot of boat mechanics do the same thing, just without all the rubbing!

    Well, yes. Yes, I got some excellent frontal pictures. The pictures were taken with a high end DSLR camera and showed awesome detail. To make sure the pictures were safe, I removed the camera’s micro-SD card and put it in my wallet.
