holy shit that looks like fun!
I plan to get a boat, but not one I can tow.. i'd like to get a little cabin cruiser and keep it moored in Puget Sound.. sort of an RV on the water. Go to a diffrant cove each night to anchor and relax..

Bigger boats are fun too - but at $5 gal for marina fuel and about 2mpg, I realized I could afford the boat but couldn't afford to go anywhere in it.

I was looking at a theoretical 150 mile (one way) trip from St Marks, FL to Panama City, FL (got family down there), and it would cost $750 (roundtrip) in fuel for a modest twin engine cruiser.

Used to have Jet Ski's....now we have a pontoon. However it's always on the water so no need to tow. I miss the speed now.

Thanks! Good for the most part. Struggles a little on really steep freeway grades but good enough for me as I typically don't really tow that far. My friends Taco with stock diameter tires pulls it better, I didn't think it would make much of a difference but the tiny bit bigger tire does. (265/70/17 vs. 265/75/16).

Here is a better shot of her.
