Save fuel! Run 3000 rpm or less! But that's no fun! :cry:

Drive it like you stole it, 3000 rpm good for cruising but I like to open her up a bit.We have had the cheapest gas here in years ,about A$3.40-3.60 per US Gal , was as high as A$6.08.
Boat is fully fueled and ready to go but I bet the gas will go up when we start using her.Hopefully our first outing will be in early October,usually start in September but this year we are off to Europe for 4 weeks so it will be postponed by a month.

Who cares, a boat is a extra toy none of us really need, but we WANT it :) so just fill her up and enjoy it !! If you want to save money on fuel, just don't but a boat , but a bike or a canoe :)
