I always gas up at Ricks Marine in Freeport, best 93 on the water. Last time I was there ( Thursday ) it was $3.69 a gallon.

BTW, I have been pulled over a few times for noise. I am running full dry pipes with GGB Extremes. So far, I never got a summons for it.

Will do. I'll definately be down there the weekend of the 16th with the boat. Hopefully before then too, but we'll see. Good thing the run was cancelled, this weather sucks. Thanks for the advice guys. I guess I'll just be as careful as I can be with the noise issues. I am going to put some kind of muffling device on over the winter, but until then there's not much I can do but try not to pizz anyone off.

Regarding the noise issue, I dont mean to post the obvious, but maybe you are not familiar so ........
You can do what you want in the ocean, even up close to the beaches. I have never seen or heard of anyone being hassled there. If you run up along the homes on the north side of the bay or state channel, you are more likely to be bothered. I tend to avoid those areas. I stay in the ocean when conditions permit or run the south side of state channel away from most of the homes. There are "No wake" zones that are marked well. Make sure you obey them, even if it is during off hours.
