So, how many hours did everyone put on their boat over the long weekend?

Around 10 for me.:)

05-31-2011, 01:50 PM
Prolly around 5. 5 glorious hours!!!!!!!!!!

05-31-2011, 01:53 PM
Rivers are high and filled with trash. Mine is still in storage.

05-31-2011, 01:55 PM
19.5 here! Boy am I sore.

05-31-2011, 01:55 PM
only about 8, total time on boats this weekend though are up around 24-26 (too choppy and too many boats with people who might put them up on docks driving them).

I thought I did pretty good till I saw your post. So, I burn anywhere from 5 - 7 gallons an hour, if you are anywhere close to that, you spent a mortgage payment on gas!!!

About 18. Had to stop as hour number 25 was getting dangerously close. Boat will be going back to the dealer for its break-in inspection this week and hopefully back in the water by Friday.

Sad to say but a big Zero ( spent it moving my cousin and searching for my Dog that got out and is still gone since sunday) :(

We had a bunch of newbee kids with us, so all of the chop made for some memorable tube rides for them.

Even with all of the chop and other boats, we still managed to get three new wakeboarders up.

MC=2 hours. Nice barefoot sesh on Monday morning

Pontoon=probly close to 12.

Weekenders almost give me a heartattack. No MC after 10AM on holiday weekends. House rule.

05-31-2011, 02:14 PM
sure did spend a fortune. Between the gas for the land rover and the gas for the boat... phew!

05-31-2011, 02:15 PM
I put about 5-6 hours on ... working on the boat / trailer ... does that count? :D

05-31-2011, 02:29 PM
3hrs Thrusday, no other boats, and glass. 20-30nph winds the rest of the time

05-31-2011, 02:29 PM
Probably only 3 engine hrs. But probably 20 floating hrs. in the cove listening to tunes.

05-31-2011, 02:35 PM
0 too windy and cold here. Need it to stop raining in Northern Cal. I don't think we've had a day in the 80's yet.

05-31-2011, 02:36 PM
4 hours on Friday surfing. I stayed off Lake Travis the rest of the weekend. Low water levels + lots of speed boats = almost getting run over.

05-31-2011, 03:09 PM
11 hours here, at Lake Mead. Would have been more but high winds....

05-31-2011, 03:12 PM
5-6 hrs for me. First big day with more than 2 people. (First time out rule - only 2 people to make sure everything was running OK) Gorgeous Sunday afternoon mid 70's. Practically had the lake to ourselves, only saw 3-4 other boats.

05-31-2011, 03:19 PM
Over 14 and probably 12.5 of it dragging tubes! Two boats 22 kids (big enough to play) 4 tubes and one water weenie (or banana as the kids call it). I did manage to ski a little-- before all the jet skis and toon's took over! The combined efforts by the lake neighbors fireworks show was awesome!! Put to music and had the sky full of sparks for 30+ minutes--great time!

05-31-2011, 03:23 PM
9 hours mostly cruising it was too choppy.

05-31-2011, 03:54 PM
We had Victoria Day long weekend or commonly known as the May two-four weekend (24 case of beer)

I had put on about 15-18 hours of use and consumed about 46 gallons of fuel. about 12 hours were boarding/surfing.

Joke was I put more hours on my boat on a long weekend than many put on their boat in a year.

Shame on those fools for not enjoying their "expensive" toy!

one tenth of an hour

05-31-2011, 04:24 PM
Only 1 hour on my boat, but it was the first one of the year and everything worked great :) except for the wind and waves :(
Did get lots of skiing in with our show team's boats though, including jump practice. My daughter and youngest son are now successful jumpers!

05-31-2011, 04:29 PM
19.5 hrs at Center hill lake

05-31-2011, 04:58 PM
6 empty lake glass water hours...

05-31-2011, 05:05 PM
50+ hours on the lake since Friday. My boat never got wet. Saw my share of crazies at the marina though

05-31-2011, 05:05 PM
9 hours. 3 ski runs and one wakeboard run for me and a LOT of tubing for the kids. About 5 hours on the pontoon completed the $100 + gas bill.
