I'll pay anything to speed up this global warming! It's damn cold in Michigan.

in my opinion , its cheaper then therepy
if i spend a couple hundred a weekend in fuel (thats a long weekend for me ) its still cheaper then the therepy i'm gonna need if i dont fuel it up and wach it sitting in my driveway all weekend , i'm almost insane now waiting for the outside temp to hit 65 degrees 2 days in a row so i can splash in the water again and relieve some stress ..
i'm sure i'm not the only one that lives for the weekend , and weekly troubles get washed away as you throttle up and watch the guages , swerve to scare some seagulls and get air of a nice rolling wave , its makin me misty just thinkin about it

Performance boating is my ONLY passion. I will do whatever it takes and pay whatever it cost to continue this. Like my father once said, "if you have to ask how much insurance or gas cost for the vehicle you want, you probably can't afford it." Those of us with $100K or greater boats may not be happy about gas prices and we may gripe a bit, but high gas prices will definitely not stop us. My contribution to the energy crisis is to limit my supercharger boost to 5 pounds and keep 100MPH runs to a minimum.

Cost of the boat totaly aside, my slip rent way far exceeds my fuel consumption

We just put the boat on automatic fuel delivery just like we do for the house.
