I have Boat U.S. unlimited towing, so I just call them and have them tow me to the places I raft up at. How many time's do you think I can do it before they catch on.

I'am working on a deal now to trade my 42 Sonic with twin 500efi's for a 47 Outerlimits with trip 700's, do you think it will suck twice the gas?

They had that owner on CNN (TV not OSO). His excuse(????) was
"My tanks were almost empty, and I didn't want to run them too far down, but didn't want to refuse service either"

Isn't this where Maximus is going to chime in and call everyone that worries about fuel a "Fuel Pu$$ie"

Tulsa larry....
That margin for your gas($1.51/9) seems reasonable. So the station can make a living and pay labor help. Geogia has cheap taxes, they brag about it in their reasons to move your business there, what are there prices. In the 70's I moved to Tulsa from Houston and gas prices jumpes 7-10 cents a gallon when you crossed the Red River. Today a I saw 1.58 at a Wal-mart 1.63 at Shell Kroger store1.62. I think marina is 2.50.

What is the price of fuel at Everglades in Fll or the 15th street marina? How about at Haulover or by Monte's in the Grove or in Islamorada?

The hell with the prices, I'm going boating! I have 2 boats to keep full, if I run out of cash I'll break out the credit card, but tanks WILL be full! I've spent WAY too much $$ on boating to let gas prices limit it.
