Is it?? My gas bill last summer was triple my insurance bill, and double the price quote I got on a Powerplay 33 I was considering. It's also double my routine spring/winter/engine/drive maintenance per year. Ya'll must be boating in some areas where gas is reasonable

When was the last time you went through 100 gallons of gas??? AND obviously you haven't been on Cobb Island for a good Friday night.

I've never seen a Brinks truck or oil tanker following a Hearse...so I guess you can't take it with you. Might as well use it while I'm here
Made a 104 mile lunch run last wednesday...The captain(me) got a free lunch but coughed up $209. in gas. Some free lunch
I do have to admit though , this season has brought a little more "hang" time in the cove with more floatin' and less boatin'. My normal season is 1100/1200 miles and I think I'm just over half of that so far this year with only a few weeks left.

Mitch its not winter here yet I even got sun burned last Sunday.

I am starting to get the race car out some .Figure I will put the boat up end of October and getting ready to pull the motors and go thru them.

3.0 litre Merc is the only way to go..... too bad I would need 7 of them in my boat to get to 80 mph.
If gas prices are your biggest b*tch of the year, you had an AWESOME year boating. I will take that every year.

i am lazy and the thought of taking the boat of my lift get the truck and trailer to get gas and then put it back in would take the fun out of it. i have to run prem 91 or better so i pay 285-3.35 per gallon out here.
sunday we burned 210 gal at 2.85 pretty easy to round off 600- in fuel and 60- for lunch,, fun run out to the golden gate bridge and back actual running timeabout 2.5 -3 hrs incl idle time etc pretty much calculates out to $ 3.30 to 4.0 per minute..
can u drink 3-4 dollars worth of beer per minute,,,,????
its crazy when u calculate this chit,,,
my accountant thinks i am a complete idiot. he asked me how in the world can u spend 1000-1500 per month in gas?? maybe i am but i sure am in GOOD COMPANY!!!
I TOLD HIM WHEN U LAY THERE TAKING YOUR LAST BREATH ARE U GONNA SAY I WISH I WOULDA,, OR I'M GLAD I DID.... SO
WORK HARD // PLAY HARD..
>>>>>but i do wish it was a little cheaper.. i better get back to work...
