Default how many hours and gas you spend in 1 year?

I was reading the tread HOW MUCH GAS YOU SPENT THIS WEEK-END, and I was curious to see how many hours boating you guys spend in a year, and what is roughly your 1 year boating fuel bill?

But it's worth it!

GLH! I was thinking about you and Neil when I started this tread! but 2500 gallons may be a lot if you are only running 50 hours a year, but really cheap if you run 200 hours. Have any idea on the number of hours you're spinning on your hourmeter ?

I normally will run my boat around 100-125 hours a year. Gas bill will probably be around $25,000-$30,000 for the year due to the crazy cost of gas this year. Right about now I am starting to miss the good old days with the outboards.

Mind you this weekend ran 95% of the time at 3000rpm running 50 MPH and the consumption was very reasonable... Wife and kids on board you know

If I kept track I probably wouldn't own a boat anymore.
