Default 30 Skater, Boating, Sep 19, North Boca Grande, FL

We left the lift behind my house at about 10:35 and returned about 3:00. Down Charlotte Harbor, west through Boca Grande pass, out to the Gulf, north to the northern tip of Boca Grande (Gasparilla Island) to Gasparilla Pass. We anchored a few feet off the beach.

The Harbor was rocking and rolling right inside of Boca Grande pass, this is pretty normal during tide changes, the Gulf was flat.

For us it was a 65.1 mile round trip, I burned 27.8gal of 93 octane, so that’s 2.34mpg.

15 pictures are posted at in FMO section

I took the total amount of gas I put in in the last 27 months, and divided that by the total amount of oil I put in.

I average right at 50 gallons of gas burn, per gallon of oil burn.
