I hear a lot of people saying " you spend this much on a boat and are worried about gph". Imo of course if you could use less fuel u would do it. You would have to be mad to think of throwing too much money on fuel if u didn't have too. Do these people also buy expensive houses and then just leave the lights ect on all the time because " if you spent that much on a house , why would you worry about the electricity bill". Just my opinion.

We're talking negligible amounts when you look at a difference of 1 GPH which I doubt the difference is even that much. If you dropped 100K on a boat and are concerned about the $300 bucks you might save in a 100-hour season you probably shouldn't have bought the boat.

If your happy to waste 300 a year then give it to me instead. And from what I have read and experienced with my boat the savings can be a lot more than that.

Woah woah now, not all of us are Canadian and can afford to get new boats every year. Our year=much longer than yours=much more gas. So yes it is a pretty significant thought when you're 27 and buying a 100k boat for you and your other 20 year old friends to use. Its all assessed when making a significant purchase. If you dont consider fuel usage a part of the added expense of a new boat, that equals pure ignorance

Summarized, just because you have the money, doesnt mean you dont value saving some

I signed the paperwork for my 20 year note on my boat loan and knew exactly what the GPH was on the boat. A man has to consider every penny when banks are giving out 20 year notes lol.

Pretty soon they will all be electric and you can just plug it in... think of the wake with all those batteries in there... and it will be so quiet... but then they will shut down all the power plants.... roh roh.... but then you can just use solar power and wind power... no worries... all good... and the best part is they will be north of 200k but you will get a taxpayer subsidy...I think that is free money....
