Joke: Blonde has a bit of trouble getting her outboard boat to perform properly on a lake.
Example: [Collected on the Internet, 1999]
Origins: We dismissed this anecdote as yet another "blonde joke," but one of our readers claims he took part in a similar experience in 1992 during his days as a designer for Bayliner. He reported that his incident took place at Lake Stevens in Washington State, and was relayed to him by the customer service team dispatched to help a man who had complained bitterly about the atrocious lack of performance of his new watercraft. The man had failed to take his boat off the trailer, but it was not necessary for a service person to go underwater to determine this: the license plate of the trailer was plainly visible under the surface.
