Cruise ??? Who in the hell has time to cruise ??

I boat all year and every time I get on the water, I'm ready to ROCK

I'm into go-fast boats because I like to go as fast as I can

All you guys with the short boating seasons ... why are you wasting precious boating hours cruising in your go-fast ????

Hammer that MoFo

Ragflappers! LMAO!!!

Judging by the differing opinions and lack of a precise definition, I guess this question wasn't as elementary as I thought.

Its all in how you run it. I can go from Monroe Micigan to Mentor Ohio (About 130 miles) on 80 gallons of gas at 3500. Of course I can blow through 250 gallons on a 100 mile poker run too.
