    Default Question. How many hours a year do you put on your boat.

    So tell me how much do you use your boat in engine hours per year.

    A new to me boat this year. Bought it end of June. Had 224 hours - now has 284. It sat from July 6 to Aug 6. It will be used for deer, duck, and goose hunting a couple more weekends.

    Others put a whole lot more than that on theirs. The boat was 5 years old when I bought it -

    Around 200 a year. I am sitting at 170 right now this year so will easily hit 200 this year.

    We just logged our 17th trip of the year. With the remaining camping, fishing and shrimping trips and the hunting trips planned this fall we will be close to 25 trips for the year. I've put on about 140 hours so far and should be near to 200 by the time we have to put her to bed for the year.

    This year I started at 482 and am now at 602, so I would say 150 for the year, which seems to be around my average. That is just the main, not counting the kicker. Fortunately it does not have a hour meter on it, nor does it drink much fuel. I am guessing that has another 50-100 hours this season.

    Launched a new boat in May and last time I looked we'd popped the 100 hour mark.

    So far I have put 105 hours on mine this year. I am close to being done for the year, possible deer hunt, but I can't see myself putting more than 15 hours on it.

    62.6 hours on the new DF150 Suzuki since June. We usually average around 100 so we have to pick up the pace!

    So it looks to me if you use you're boat 100 hours a year its a pretty good year. Maybe a little better than average. 100 hours is my goal.
