Long Boating Jokes

One Friday evening, a guy returns home from work and goes to speak to his wife. “Darling, my boss wants me to go for a fishing trip this weekend at one of the big lakes in Canada.

I think this will be a chance for me to get that promotion I’ve been after for so long. But I’m going to need you to help me; could you pack a bag with clothes for a week and get my rod and tackle box ready, please? 

I’m heading back to work and we’ll be going on the trip straight from the office but I’ll pop back home to grab my things. Oh and one more thing, could you make sure you pack my blue silk pajamas, please?” This wife thinks that something sounds a little fishy but nonetheless, she does as her husband has requested.

 It’s now late on Sunday evening and the husband returns home; he’s very tired and the wife asks him how the trip went. “Oh very well, we caught quite a lot of fish; some Bluegill, a handful of pike and some Walleye. But you didn’t pack my blue silk pajamas like I asked.” The wife looks at her husband and calmly says “Oh, yes I did. They were in your tackle box.”

There’s a group of skippers walking around a town in search of crew members. They spot a large building with five stories. Outside is a sign that reads ‘Crew Association; Ship’s crew available.’ This is exactly what they have been looking for so they head inside. 

There’s a security guard there who, through his salty attitude, explains how things work. “We’ll go through the five floors and when you find what you need, you can choose. It’ll be easy because there’s a sign on each that tells you who is inside.” This all sounds great so the crew head on up and go to the first floor. There’s another sign here that reads “Beginner crew members on this floor. “ The skippers chuckle and without even thinking about it, head on up to the next floor. 

Here they find a sign that reads “This floor contains crew that are smart and experienced, but weak.” This still isn’t enough for them, so the skippers carry on to the next floor. The sign on the third floor reads “This floor contains crew that are smart, experienced and strong.” This sounds OK but they still want more. Knowing that they still have two floors to go, they move up to the fourth floor. Here, the sign reads “Crew on this floor are smart, experienced, strong and Former Americans Cup Champions.” 

This sounds more like it and the skippers are getting excited. But then, they realise that there is still one floor to go. Of course, they are curious as to who is up there so they take the risk and head up. But when they arrive, they find a sign that reads “There are no crew here, we only built this floor to show that there’s no way to please a skipper.”
