How have increased gasoline prices impacted your time on the boat?
I have noticed prices seem to be dropping recently, but I've set aside my cabin cruiser dream for good. I've preferred sailing for a long time now, but Gramps started me out on his cabin cruiser when I was 5, I have a deep fondness for stinkpots. Prices haven't affected me, my company pays my travel expenses between my house and boat, any personal business I need to tend to can be dealt with while traveling between Portland and Olympia so I rarely do any personal travel once I'm either at work or at home. Don't have an outboard on Avenger yet, so it will have a slight impact when I get one, but considering my neighbor and I have used his boat considerably over the last year and only had to fill the 6gal tank twice, I think I'll be OK. Might even go with an electric motor.
