Last year, three full 100 gallon tanks at about $1.60 a gallon or so. The last half of the last tank ended up in my truck after I hurt my motor. So, last year was an easy fuel bill I guess. Other years, I could not tell you how many tanks or how much money, I average over 100 hours a season. May to end of Sept.

I boat a lot! When it's running....

I think I average about 50-70 gallons a weekend, depending on the weather. Alot of driving around in a circle on a lake 4 miles long From memorial day to labor day, i run up there

So at $3 a gal I don't even want to add it up

It's all relative

2 to 3k per year

4 months of boating

2 454 mag mpi's gas at the bargain price of 1.90 -2.20 per gallon

I agree with all of you who want to delete this thread ... i only ever thought about it as $150 bucks each time ... It seems so much worse when you add it all up ... If I didn't boat and spend all the money on gas, beer, dockage, beer, weekend trips,beer, repairs, beer, and upkeep not to mention the depreciation on the boat I could be a very rich man but I would't have any fun with money in the bank

therefor its all relative .... you can't take it with you so might as well throw some damn good boating parties.

Cost of a boat

Gas $2500
Dock 800
Beer & bar tab's ??,??? I really don't want to think about this one

Depreciation 4,000
Repair & upkeep 1,000
Weekend trips 2,000






Getting to tell the story about your drunk friend passing out naked on the sunpad at 2:00pm at Put-In-Bay ......PRICELESS
