    Cruise ??? Who in the hell has time to cruise ??

    I boat all year and every time I get on the water, I'm ready to ROCK

    I'm into go-fast boats because I like to go as fast as I can

    All you guys with the short boating seasons ... why are you wasting precious boating hours cruising in your go-fast ????

    Only because the water was like glass that day ,which was a week day in April and virtually no other traffic.
    You can never have too much horsepower or money...It's just hard to have both.

    Ragflappers! LMAO!!!

    Judging by the differing opinions and lack of a precise definition, I guess this question wasn't as elementary as I thought.

    Its all in how you run it. I can go from Monroe Micigan to Mentor Ohio (About 130 miles) on 80 gallons of gas at 3500. Of course I can blow through 250 gallons on a 100 mile poker run too.
