I made a huge change a few years ago, sold the BB twins and went for a fender boat. So far this seasson I have 20 hrs of run time and have spent $100 in fuel. I get more people asking me about this boat since I can beach it and still hit 50mph, and go out in 15ft seas and laugh. There is no doubt you can still boat and it does not have to be a 1970 DuoCraft with a Johnson 50 either. The other night I went out and never stopped running on plane, I spent over an hour out there running around....because it was so hot you had to keep moving...something I could not afford to do with the AT. I think I used $10 or so. This is a 115 4 stroke EFI and it is like a dream to own.
