That depends on what you mean by the terms 'use your boat'
Under power about 120 hours, actually using the boat for rafting up, party time, the dirty piggly wiggly etc..
28 weekends a year (I take three day weekends) = 84 days
Add one 7 day week for vacation = 91 days
Avg 5 hours per day on the boat = 455 hours an easy possiblity ... but I really imagine total use of the boat would be about 300 hours with 120 running.


I look at it this way... boat payment, insurance payment, slip rental,,,,, I damned sure going to get my money's worth!
