so go to get your tool box thats 25-30 lbs and all of the sudden it 80 -100 lbs funny for everyone to watch

We used to do something similar to the new guys when I was an electrician. Everybody uses those plastic five gallon buckets to carry their tools in. Always fun to empty the tools when the rookie wasn't there and shoot the bucket to the concrete floor with a Hilti gun then replace his tools. Lots of fun.

SeaFoam to the air intake.

lots and lots of white smoke.

If you do it to me tell me soon, very soon, because if you don't I will start a gun thread.

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

Hey cool... I like the spare parts gag. He is rebuilding a couple of things on his boat.

For the negative dark doom legal naysayers, I'm sorry I have offended you. I'm sure that Dear Abby could use some of your advice.

We are just having a little fun here. (no starch in our underwear)

A spare part tied to some fishing line that can go over the side- nice thought there.

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

Well, the flag thing is all harmless fun (and quite creative). The stainless hardware is relatively harmless. The supergluing of docklines is getting a little bit more serious.

It could all escalate if y'all allow it to, but harmless pranks are harmless pranks. As long as they don't result in damage to boats or gear (mild damage to egos is OK) or endanger anyone's safety its all good IMO.

Unfortunately I'm not very creative when it comes to pranks so not much help to ya. Best I can think of is tying a sack or a bucket to the keel of your mate's yacht (will require SCUBA gear).

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

I am surprised that you gentlemen don't know the rules of practical Jokes.

They must be funny rather than malicious.
They must be clever.
They must not result in damage.

I have been the butt of many very good practical jokes from very good friends over the years and have played a few as well.
I think my best effort was to have a friend at the local volunteer rescue association broadcast to my "mate" over the call channel during a gamefishing competition.
He told him that his wife had opened his home delivered blow up sex doll by mistake and wanted him to come home immiediatly.

You can imagine the radio chatter!

A mate once put three mackerel in my bilge to get very smelly.
Not very original but he had the common sense to put them in a tupperware container with the lid right beside the container for disposal.

Good mates are hard to find!
Regards. Shiner

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

How about a beer competition.

You buy a six pack of the most obscure beer you can find and dare him to find some that is rarer (or better)...

Same could be done with chocolate...

Are you both that bored?

That is the real difference.

A freind of a friend got married. Someone put sardines in somewhere where the cabin air is gotten from. Car left for part of honeymoon. Car not usable.

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

How about replacing his tell tales with a lacy green bra on one side and a red pair of nickers on the other.

Tellie we would do something similar. When a guy put his nail bags down on a plywood floor we would take the nailgun and shoot a couple nails thru the bags and into the floor. It was always a good laugh.

Speaking of Mates… a chief officer of mine on a super yacht got his own command after 3 years working with me. Great guy, good officer… but pretty reserved from his British Royal Navy days. Captain “X”

His new employers had him do a circumnavigation of South America, then using New Zealand south island as a base, adventure trips down to Antarctica.

A few years later, he tied up behind us at Sydney Naval base (near the opera house) for some maintenance. Great reunion and he admitted, they were all in need of a break!

Following Saturday, we offered to take captain x and his all male crew out for some fun around Kings Cross. We told “X” that I would foot the bill provided he let loose and let us take care of him. So leaving just a junior deckhand on board his yacht, my chief engineer (of many years) volunteered to keep emergency watch on both vessels.

Captain X to his word got totally hammered and 3am found us carrying him back to his berth with most of his crew in the same condition.

First clue I had that Chiefy and the guys had been busy was a trail of straw up their gangway to the Bridge deck and X’s cabin. Sure enough, inside his cabin on a bed of straw was a contented sheep tied to some furniture.

X was totally oblivious to his new cabin mate so we put him to bed and put out the lights.

For some reason, Sunday morning was a late start, but some of our girl crew did hear some yelling at about 7 am and they could see something wooly tied to the Bridge wing.

The funniest part was watching Captain X and crew try to quietly remove the sheep from the Naval Base on a Sunday afternoon.

Luckily it was Australia, where renting sheep is not that uncommon and they are an open minded nation!

And Yes! We are still friends.

Re: Pranks and practical jokes... what's next?

Renting sheep for one night stands is pretty open minded.

It's not quite as far away as Australia.
