... operate you boat per hour?

Not including you guide fees, but what it cost to run the boat. Gas, oil, registration fees, maintenance costs what do you use?
ROFLMAO :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm not a pro, so for me B.O.A.T means "Break out another thousand." Admiral claims the boat is a hole in the water into which I throw my money.

If I ever tried to calculate the cost per hour, she would require me to sell it.
I'm with Dave on that one Ken. 8)

I know my cost-per-hour for fuel and oil, but everything else I try to 'shield' from the Admiral. :D

Stopped into Anglers yesterday to replace some metal and topwater lures that I've lost lately (and to add a few new ones) and the bill was $85. :shock:
But... While I was there, Charlie showed me a better knot to use for my braid-to-leader than my usual 10x10, so it was still a good shopping experience. It's also one reason why I buy from my local tackle shops. :wink:

I save all boating related receipts, and could figure my operating cost, but as a rec fisherman, I don't think I want to.
It might take the fun out of it. :)
As a recreation fisherman/boater I think I spend around $6000 a year. Slip, Gas, Insurance, Maintenance, etc., I don't have a boat payment. I would never add up receipts because it most likely be more.
don't know true actual costs per hour, i do know i get about 2.5-3.0 MPG. depending on how i run it and how many folks i have on the trip plus how many rock collections they want to bring.
I'm actually saving all my receipts this year. Not looking forward to adding it up in December. :shock:
