I sure am glad I run an electric recharable battery for my trolling motor after hearing about these rediculous gas prices.
I am between boats at the moment. My first boat was a 2000 Bayliner 1850LX Capri Sport with a 4.3L V6:
My last one was a 1986 Bayliner 2450 Ciera Sportcruiser with a 5.7L Volvo AQ:
Enjoyed it a lot:
SO the big question is....what comes next?
....and so it goes.

Boat #1: 14' electric-powered Tahoe Sport pontoon boat (after reading those fuel mileage figures , I'm even more glad it's electric!)
POs took great care of it...
^A few months after buying it, a complete restoration was done here at home, including the upholstery.
Boat #2: 10' (I think) Schiada outboard
The boat is smaller than the van.
This was quite a find. It was ordered by a dentist from New York who had a summer place in northern Canada where the boating season is what, two weeks long? The story was told that he took it out of the water every time he used it, put it on a trailer and put it in his dry garage. It never sat outside. It still had 98% of the bilge paint intact. It sat for a very long time and something seized and the engine was replaced. Bummer, those I-6s were powerful and smooth.
Note the black original interior. I was told that boats shipped to Canada often had black interiors, because they need the heat.
