    Never really thought about the distance. Pulled up the map and sketched out a path. Looks like the longest round trip we have done is about 44 miles, with some mild surfing and boarding in-between. If I recall, it took ~36 gallons to fill it back up the next weekend. So still, plenty of gas left. Cursing doesn't burn near as much as when the ballast is full and surfing.

    Your Makai is fine 70 gallon tank.
    His 2016 Mojo is only 40 gallons. So I understand the concern, but no ballast strictly cruising at 22-ish mph should be good.

    Ruger, I generally tend to burn more fuel when I am cursing and pissed off! LOL! Gotta love that autocorrect.

    Mojo is 50 gallons. I have been thinking it wouldn't be a problem but then I started to read a trip report from someone else and they stretched it a bit too far and it got me worried. He was getting 1.5 mpg instead of 2 mpg due to a problem with the boat he was running. I haven't ever tried to track it. My BIL just about ran his Supra SL out doing a similar excursion but was able to buy gas off of a houseboat. I really wouldn't be too worried except the mid-lake marina (Dangling Rope) was damaged last summer and NPS hasn't been able to find a replacement, leaving about 80 miles of lake (not counting the 10 miles up the other river arm we will be going to) between the two closest marinas with gas. I recalculated my trip and it will really run about 80 miles total, but I think I will be fine. I will be tossing in 10-20 gallons in cans for some peace of mind though. Hopefully in a couple weeks I will be able to send a nice shot of us passing beneath Gregory Natural Bridge.

    Ah yes that would be a lot harder to do. Should be good to go, your lighter than we are, and I generally cruise around 30ish
