I don't know what it is, but I think he might come down in price if you try to bargain with him.

You should watch your language. This is a family forum.

In the Old South, it was when the farmer was found in the corn bin.

Re: This was not on the Captains License Test

Since the poster can't spell sails - maybe he can't spell pontoons? My guess is the whole boat is for sale

Re: This was not on the Captains License Test

Actually plantoons aren't bad when peeled, sliced thin, and fried in hot oil

Re: This was not on the Captains License Test

Whats a Plantoon
I think it might be a new military catamaran with a plantoon of soldiers to go with it. Wonder what weapons they cary and if this belongs in the gun or no gun thread. This might be able to be used as a dingy/security device.

Re: This was not on the Captains License Test

There is no reference to "plantoon" on Google so I suspect it is some kind of top secret Military weapons platform for use against Somali Pirates and Cruisers with unsecured y-valves.

Re: This was not on the Captains License Test

I thought Plantoon was a new chain of stores opening. A subsidiary of the Car Toon car stereo company but aimed toward the aviation market.
