$300 every 2 hours of run time in fuel. New dock 10k. New lift 3k. New to me blowers 9k, getting blowers rebuilt 600. new lower intakes 1200, fuel system 1300. building a custom light weight hatch with scoops to cover the blowers and chillers. it never stops, its an addiction. It will never be fast enough or loud enough. And I guess Im lucky I dont have a loan or storage or insurance to pay for cause they wont touch a cat

That's a really affordable season

I like the active thunder 28 nice rig very big for a 28.

Im guessing the 1000 bones buys you about 3-4 tanks of gas depending on where you source your fuel.

How many weekends/days of use is this for you?

60 hrs use. Nothing major, just some minor upgrades, repairs and maintenance=$1000. Prop labbing $600.
Fuel??? probably about 3k.

Throw in payments, insurance and boating vacations and add another 10k or so.

And your ride is so cool. I want to see it closer. Throw some photo's up here. Drytails, Matt told me someone heard it and said it sounded pi$$ed off. The swim platform muffles it down ideling around but when she stands up they do bark.
