of gas. Our 35 hp would run 3 hrs on 6 gal at water ski speeds (wide open till the skier got up, then throttle back to 25-30 mph to pull 2-3 skiers. With 35 hp the guys had to get up 1 at the time, the 50s could snatch 3 guys out of the hole at once, but,hey, that gas cost $.309 per gal plus oil. Six gal per hr was too expensive to run, But Sam and Sonny Monroe sold a bunch of them to "The Rich Boys". Monroe sold Johnson Sea Horse and, I
think Mercury. I think King Bros Firestone sold "Never-rude"!
