    We put just over 100 hours on the boat last year, 60 gal. per hour. Fuel is stil the cheapest part of boating.

    ****, anybody wanna buy a boat??

    No, really, how many of us really wants to know, and what the &*@#! would any of us do differently once we did know?? Get a smaller boat? Drive slower?? Cut back on the number of trips out?? Donnnnn't thee--nk sooooo.....

    I just figured out that I spend a minimum of $3,400 a year on gas for just me in my cars/truck. Thats 30,000 miles a year at $1.70 for high test and 15mpg. Add the wifes $2,000 a year for a total of $5,400, now all of a sudden who gives a *&$## about another $1,000 for boating???? Hell, sounds like I need to burn another $2,400 in the boat just to even things up!......Then if I let the wife buy gas for the boat that would be another $2,000..... Guess I better splash tomorrow and get started!!!

    But seriously, I drive fun stuff and enjoy every minute of it, so I've never really thought twice about it till now (thanks alot), and........... I won't spend another minute on it again.

    Fun costs money - simple as that..............

    Shhhhhh, listen, can you hear them beggin' for a drink??

    Here's how I look at it. At the end of the season I compare my bar bills to my gas bills. If the gas bill is greater...then I had a good boating season...nothing broke. If the bar bill is larger..well you know the rest.

    This season was ...well lets see...twice as expensive as last year on the gas bill!!!

    But well worth it!!!
    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    Much rather spend money on a bar bill... 36 spectre DIESELS 90 mph 12-14 gals per hour @ $1.60 you can do a lot of boating without spending a lot on fuel .. also VERY RELIABLE.. average 150 hours a year @ 14 gals per hour= 2100 gals @ 1.60 = $3,360 not bad for a year of boating......
