We, too were looking @ possibly moving up to a bigger, (Twin screws) boat, BUT in light of the gas $$, were holding off for the time being and keeping our SINGLE gas guzzing HP500!

I may actually put my quadrapukes back on if the gas price continues at this rate. They wont make as much power but are way better on fuel mileage.

You have to take a few friends out and share the gas burden. I have to run premium fuel and as you know it's not cheap. So 4 friends spending 50 bucks a piece gives you 150 in gas and 50 in beer. Girls are extra .

cost of boat amortised per hour - $250.00
cost of insurance - $50.00
repairs and maintenance per hour - $250.00
Gas per hour @ even $3.00 - $180.00
launch fees, food, etc. $100
flying across 4 footers at 90 - priceless

I just finished reading the whole Internet this morning and I ran across this Jon!

==========================
The price of premium gasoline is $4.29.9 a gallon Thursday, March 13, 2003, at this Texaco station in El Cajon, Calif., a suburb of San Diego. This Chevron Station across the street is selling premium for $2.29.9 a gallon. Business at the Texaco was non-exisisting. (AP Photo/Jack Smith)
