- 2 trips per month
- 12 months
- About 1 quarts per trip ...
Equals 6 gallons per year. At $5.00 per gallon, about 30 gallons per year or $1.25/trip.
Then there is the case of the guy with 3 x 250 HP on the back, burning $375.00/hour.
Then there are the fishmen, trolling for hours and hours at 3 knots. But really, they're only burning ~ 0.3 GPH at idle, so only a few gallons while trolling. Getting to and from the fishing grounds might be 5-10 gallons, if it's not far. So maybe $50-100 for the day.
Plus carfare. Plus slip. Plus, plus, plus.... Maybe I should just buy a fish sandwich, even at only 1 quart per trip.
