The bay was like a parking lot this weekend,did not seem to matter.My 06 292 fastech is pretty easy on fuel the older non step bottom boats are ruff on fuel.So unless you have really big power 600 sci's and above I don't think it will have much affect

I'm done.

Even the ride out to check the boat has become a pain.

Boat ad went up this morning.

If it sells I'll buy a hammock.

I use my AMEX just so I don't have to carry a wad of cash around...other than that the bill is paid in full every month!

Plus, not having the cash in my wallet is a means to control spending...
