We are morons that get a new boat almost each year and put 30-40 hours on it. This summer we got a new boat and put 8 on it.. I wish we could put 100's of hours on. It'd be great!!!!!!!!!

Normally 36-48 hours on my Caravelle. Sold it this year and got my Formula. Pulled the eng out for repairs and more power so "0" hours on my Formula and 18 hours borrowing my neighbors Chaparell.
Next year shooting for 80 hrs on the Formula.

500 hrs minimum. maybe as much as 800 hrs a year. I am in the Industry so my total probably shouldn't count.

P.S. Yes I love my job and no I don't make very much money.

My personal boat gets about 150-200 hrs.

My answer to you Bob is some of us still have to work for a living.

When I reach your advanced years I'll hopefully have time to spend as much as you on the water.I know we enjoy the same hobbies.

Be well my friend.

Hi!

Mounted twins on ol Phantom this summer. Could not get on water before 4th July. So only 50 hours this year. Normally 100-150 hours May - September. Horrendous gas prices in Norway......, but you only lives ones!

Cheeeeers, Toffen G

Hey Alec,

Great to hear from you. I know you do not traditionally take your boats south for the winter but you should think about that. Or at least come down and join me.
And that pic of yours - you're not trying to catch me , you're 10 miles out front !
And yes, we do share some of the same hobbies but we best not talk about that ! LOL
Bob
