Maybe Iím being selfish but in my mind I donít see how I could be any more social distant than being on the water all day. I will have to make one stop for gas. If I fill the boat and truck up completely then that should be enough gas for 3 trips in the boat and I may have to add more gas in the truck on the 3rd day. I want an honest opinion from you guys. If I didnít have to make the fuel stop then I wouldnít even bat an eye. Do you guys think my plan is appropriate or am I being part of the problem? Of course there could be an order coming that completely locks everything down.
Perfectly fine. The gas stations need the business and you won't be putting anyone at risk.

Drop a report on here if you get a moment....thinking about going Friday or Saturday myself.

So...I'll stay and remain in the back of the boat if for any reason you need help launching the boat.

I don't think what you are doing is a problem, take either nitrile gloves or hand sanitizer and wipe down the pump handle and credit card reader , if you limit your actual touching of surfaces and being away from people I don't see how that could be a problem

Good luck, if you see a young skinny red headed kid in a red bass boat thats my buddy Ethan, give him a shout out lol
