That won't matter for most. Gas is the cheapest part of ownig these boats. That'll just separate those living within their means from those living without.

Fuel is on people's mind no matter how much they actually buy/need. People remember fuel used to be $1.00 a gallon, panic and start buying hybrids. My mom drives 8-10K miles a year, gas hit $4 and she was talking about hybrids for replacing her X3. She buys less than 500 gallons of gas a year, that is less than 10 gallons a week so even at $4 a gallon it is only $40 a week!

I worked at a Saturn dealer when gas peaked. We had idiots taking $10K losses on their trucks to get a Saturn for the fuel economy. It takes a long time to save 10k in gas, even if you doubled your fuel economy.

You can't expect rational thought, or better yet a sound business cased analysis from the avg idiot on the street.

Hell, if gas sky rockets maybe I can lease a truck for cheap for winter. Funny thing is the truck would get better gas mileage than my daily driver.

I would think gas increasing would change boating behavior and not force people to dump them? I already don't just drive constantly for that reason, and expect more people to spend more time floatin/relaxing than driving.
