    100 octane (unleaded) around here is currently 5.50-5.95 a gallon at the pump.

    Maybe de-tune them a little to run on it. I know you have deep pockets, but filling up @ 1350 per will wear on you eventually since you do so much boating, I would think.

    On the other hand, it could be worse. Look at the $30,000+ dollar fill-ups that big yachts require.

    I assume your MTI hold 270 gal. That will make a fill up about $3000. I know the boat has really big power, but I would think about pulling some boost out of it and run a lower octane. Keep the c16 for running Joey Padavono.
