Probably around 350 to 400. We have 340 I think on ours. We did the top ends about a 100 hrs ago. They still run strong!

Good time to rebuild the heads with all new parts and new roller lifters... Should be good for another 2-300 more hours with regular maint.!

Just curious, but why do you have almost half your hours below 2K rpms? Lots of no wake zones perhaps??

From what I am told it is not good for marine big blocks to run at low rpm for a large percentage of time.
