Ahhhh the advantage of being a slow cruiser. Never really checked but I was curious so I looked at my Yamaha engine performance bulletin and saw that at my normal cruise speed of 14mph I am probably burning around 3 gallons an hour
This post reminds me of a song: “James” by a local Dr here who sings in the bars on the side for fun. Actually a true story he wrote about a guy in town that rides in a handicapped scooter all over town without a care in the world. The great line in the song;
‘50 smile an hour, passing the water tower, eating ice cream in the rain’
And that’s what my boat gets. 50 smile an hour. I guess I’ll care about the gallons if I ever run out.
