Hey tripps,
100 gals last you 3 weeks ? what do you do idle around on one motor? with those three gas guzzlers on the back I'd think 100 gal would last you Oh about 45 minutes. ( ha ha )

I think what Tripps meant to say is that he consumes 100 gallons of BEER every three weeks.

My boat isn't that bad on gas. I think I can cruise at about 50 mph on around 10-12 gallons per hour.

I agree with Horseplay. Gas is the cheapest thing I have to buy for the boat.
