For years, boat owners have heard the old wives’ tale of what owning a pleasure vessel actually means. Instead of pleasure and fun on the water, boat owners often joke that the word actually means “Break Out Another Thousand.”
That’s in thousands of dollars.
With gas continuing its record increase, owning a boat is taking on a new meaning – paying up at the fuel pump.
Remarkably, boat dealers across South Mississippi and South Alabama are reporting record sales, even though the cost of gas could easily reach $4 a gallon by the end of the summer.”
It’s good to know that gas prices haven’t sidelined everyone. Despite rising fuel and energy costs people are still enjoying their recreational time on the water.
