They mentioned that get about 100 miles out of their tanks when full and it holds 360 gallons.

My complete refit is taking completely too long!

Someone here at SailNet posted this on another thread, and I think it's appropriate that it be quoted here.

So if I don't even have a motor, as I have yet to have boat, does that make me the smartest guy on the planet??

Though there is a lot to be said about that equation.... in regards to common sense and just plain DB factor....

I guess it depends on what kind of car you drive.

I can/could appreciate the thrill of going 110 on the water...never done it but could see myself doing it for maybe an hour or so, then I would get bored, I could NEVER think about owning one, what a waste.
