Put $125 in onm the trailor last weekend at 2.71 to fill her up 100 gallon tank. Ran last weekend on that and still had 3/4's tank left. So this weekend I ran it down to about 1/4 tank and heard that a couple marinas were not moving there prices since the gas was paid for already.

IT WAS TRUE.

Got gas at 2.79 on the river put $100 in took it easy on the sticks and lasted all weekend.

Rumor has it the marinas tanks are full and they aren't changing their prices till they run out. Paulie at Pirates Cove is a pretty good guy obviously he understands that if people can't afford to boat then there is no need for his marina or his mechanics or parts.

Colonial Beach Yacht Club is where I got the gas Monday @ $2.99 for 89 octane.
We were at Chapel Point and Goose Bay Saturday then went back home (Shymanksky's). Stayed at Tall Timbers Sunday night for the boat burning.

The fuel at any price is still the cheapest part of owning an offshore boat.

That Sh**T aint't right, its bad enough that the condo uses that much, then you come down to our marina and use all our gas, you drove by 2 marinas just to come and drain all our gas out!!! I had to go and get gas on the trailer because Joe said they had no gas some ocean liner came and pumped it all out. It used to be, how fast does that thing go, now they ask how much does it cost to fill it up.....just messing with you guys sorry we missed you this week end.
