Just turned 100hrs in my 2002. Got it in 2008, with 60hrs. I average about 10hrs per season. I use it every weekend that it's not raining. So I get anywhere from 15-25 nice weekends per season.

So far this season I've gotten about 7 weekends in. Plus spent a full week on her in July.

I drive it, just not very far. Where we anchor and hangout isn't far from the dock. 5-10 minute run down the river or across the bay. I don't mind putting gas in her, but I'm not just gonna use it to waste it. I run with a little over half a tank of fuel to keep the weight down, usually lasts me 3-4 weekends.

I got my 88 311 with 240 hours 2 years ago. It had sat in a rack for 10 years unused.

I put 12 hours on the 271 last week in Cape May, Lewes De, Delaware Bay and Wildwood NJ. It is a great boat and a lot of fun for cruising in these conditions. Lot of dolphins around this year. Last week's new moon, heavy current and tides, requires vigilance, especially in the slip or at the ramp. I'll shop LOTO for the next one. Considering a 353 with 525's SC'd.
