Speaking of gas usage. My ex in law's moved to Florida around 2,001 and bought a big boat to live in. Thing had two 454 Chevys and I think a 4 cylinder for the electric generator. Got the thing for around $25,000 and the marina rent was cheaper than a trailer park. Exfather in law likes to play big shot but has never had the money to do it right. So they were just going to live in the thing and bum boat rides off neighbors that could actually afford to start up their boats. They did the same thing on Leach Lake by Walker MN with a duel 350 Chevy powered boat. That one they just stayed in on weekends in the summer and it probably got repossessed in the fall. The guy should right a book about keepin up with the Jones on a deadbeat's budget.
