The biggest cost from fuel is going to be hard to see; everything is going to cost more because of the transportation. I just initiated a fuel surcharge for my business (held off until I couldn't absorb it anymore) of 5%. Last year diesel was about $3.10/gal. and now it's $4.45. With my fleet average being 4.7 gal/hr that's over $6 per hour increase. Sailboats don't generally use enough fuel to make much difference, but everything we buy for them will reflect the increased cost of transportation. It would be interesting to ask this question in a power boat forum.
