I replied, "well, you've always been a little dinghy!"
I need to go on a power trip.

Uncle: I just have to paint the sailboat before we can get it back in the water. Dad: Wow, that sounds like a hull of a lot of work...Get it? GET IT?!

My dad doesn't have a traditional "dad joke" sense of humor, but this one was great. My family was driving to church one day and my sister noticed an empty jar under one of the seats. My sister asked why it was there, but she phrased it as, "what's this?" My dad replied, with a mischievous grin, "it's sailboat fuel."
So I'm varnishing a sailboat tiller at work and I just put the second coat on it. I went to my boss and I was like I just put a second coat on the tiller. He looks at me straight faced with no sarcasm in his voice and was like "why was it cold" then just walks off.
Though usually dad jokes are groan-worthy puns, I think this fits the category as a very dad-like joke despite the lack of punnery:
I got a message from my truck driver brother-in-law, who says he's hauling "post holes and sailboat fuel" back home today.
