Payments
gas
insurance
Dock
Storage
Maintenance = $33,000 x 50 hours = $660.00 per hour

Dont want to even think about it when you add for the 60k repower coming next month.

I must say though, We spent alot of time lounging on the boat in the bay rafted up with great friends making memories.... in other words

PRICELESS !!!!

Are you going with the 525s? They should run you around $40-50k for a pair. Where are you keeping the boat for the Winter?

Fortunately ( ), it was a busy year for me. 38', 600's => $528/ hour. A bargain, considering what it did for my mental well-being....

Unfortunately, being the idiot I am I have 2 boats. Not including insurance, fuel or other ancillary costs like storage, trialering etc, etc, this year I was north of 4,000 pr hour.

And I loved every minute of it. Then I think of all the hookers, booze, hookers, limos, and hookers I could have had and I am still happy I am a boater and have my loving honey!

So, since I only made payments this year, never put a drop of gas in it, never put it in the water, didn't take out any insurance, and stored it in my driveway, how do I figure this out?? The total payments divided by 0 hours is still 0!!!

So let's figure out the Glastron, which I used a LOT this year.

$0 payment
$0 storage
Homowners covers it for insurance so I won't include it 'cause I pay it regardless
$0 slip fees
$45 license fees for three years... so $15 a year
and 36 gallons of gas for the entire season.... at we'll say $1.90 a gallon. So $68.40 total.

Add it up and divide by approximately 40 hours or so.... $2.84 per hour. We'll include gas in the truck.... say maybe 80 gallons towing it around at $1.90 a gallon. Add $152... divide.... carry the 1....divide by pi...... subtract the squre root of 45........ and whalla!!! $5.51 an hour. Gotta love the Glastron!!!!
