Re: Towing MPG Thread

We pull our 20 foot toon with a 2010 Toyota 4 Runner SR 5 / 4.0 V6. With the boat in tow we get about 16.5 mpg. Without it about 19 to 20.

Re: Hi from Texas

Hello henpecked and welcome to the forum. waiting a couple of months may be a good thing as that would be nearing the end of the boating season for some parts of the county.

My problem is that they allegedly put plexi glass on the sides, basically making them a coffin if they did take on water. Thats pretty accurate Steve.. my wife and I took our grandson on a duck ride about 7 weeks ago... never again. I remember sitting there, looking out the window and they had this...

Re: How long did you shop for your boat?

all together I probably boat shopped for about a month. But I started out with the plan to buy a bass boat.. after a couple of week ends looking at bass rigs, I was "nudged" to look at pontoons set up for fishing..

Re: Branson 6-7 to 6-10

Craig.. looks like you all had a good time.. if you don't mind me asking, what did they charge for you to rent that pontoon? was it on tablerock? and you didn't by chance rent it from a place called Lilly's landing did you?
