boating is for fun and relaxation, can't put a price on that...

If you can't swing an extra $1K or $2K on gas per season, one might argue you really can't afford the hobby in the first place. Boats are too big an investment to just let sit idle.

Bingo.

Also, it's your choice if you want to run like hell. Throwing an anchor out and cracking a cold one doesn't require fuel.

I may cut down on the long runs, but I won't cut down on boat therapy

I figure the additional dollar a gallon this year increases my annual boating expense by 5% based on 1,000 gallons used. I wish my health insurance only went up 5% this year. I put fewer miles on because I refuse to pad the pockets of the thieves, but I'm on the boat every weekend and loving it. I had a wave runner once, they are like fat chicks and mopeds, fun to ride, but you don't want to let your friends see you on one!
