Boat ride home around 5. Dock to dock takes me appox 40 mins each way

I have been curious if I would be able to make that trip on a tank of fuel in my boat (1990 prostar 190 with 454). I drove up to commodore yacht club and back at cruising speed and used around half a tank. Would definately have to fuel up at rock harbor. I would top it off going and coming just to be safe.

I might have to make the trip next yr during cmt fest. Before the flood we would take the X45. We would have a blast.

Has anyone reopened the restaurant at rock harbor or have you heard of any plans to reopen.

Nice boat. Glad she is running strong after the flood.
