Same old honda 4-stroke, same old boat. Got them both directly after Keith. The engine has been submerged in salt water three times, has a chunk out of the lower end and runs just great. Given the price of gas, I'm happy to have an engine that "only" uses a gallon every 7 or 8 miles.
That's not very encouraging. Living north of the cut, say at Captain Morgan's, you'd pay as much for gas round trip on the boat, as you'd pay for water taxi, right? Does it take long to learn how to 'pilot' a boat?
