well i am fortunate in selling my boat and moving to a much more economical boat, so fuel pricing wont be a problem to me at all going forwards

mind you a 3.4 sib with a get what you pay for

as long as we are on the water we will be having fun for sure and the kids love it.

another way at looking at fuel prices is this.....if your typical day is 20 or 50 or 100 or 150 quid of boat fuel

then consider a little bit less dashing around, perhaps stop for slightly longer, moor up to a buoy and take in the scenery....if you then use 20-30% less fuel then it will cost you no good?

Those figures are suprising but not the ones on the diesel - i have always thought that the ONLY advantage of a diesel was when you can buy untaxed red fuel for a 1/3 the price.
