Bigwavs....Have my eye on a 32' Active Thunder from here on the board. Yes, I'll be at the Shootout. You're not gonna make that one without me. Thanks for the compliments too.
Engine and drive are serviced every 20 hrs. Mobil 1 15-50. Did a compression check last fall. All cylinders checked out at 148-150 psi. Merc manual says specs are 150.
To me this is average or low hours. I don't understand why people think that these have to be tore down at 500 hrs or so. Just don't understand why one shouldn't see in excess of 1,500 or more hours out of a stock engine.
