Question Gas Prices

Will these prices keep you from boating as much as you want ?

May have to limit the number of river runs we go on. More floating at the lake and coves instead.

I can cruise all day at 50 MPH only burning about 10 GPH. Gas prices might deter me from engine mods that increase consumption and run high octane gas.

Yes, I keep track of hours and gallons everytime I fill up. My boat has a '7 beam and is relatively light for a 24. Plus I have a stock MPI engine. It may sound hard to believe but it is true. I once went 160 miles according to my GPS on 55 gallons.

5 mpg, thats awesome. i think i get about 1. my dads boat gets 1/3 mpg. or 3 gallons per mile. I knew what i was getting into though with boats and just add it to the monthly expense.
