Now how would you come up with something silly like that ??? 29 hours so that mean 29 at WOT NOT ...If you have'nt figured it out the hour meter is running idling at the dock,marina,no wake zones,and while warming things up .We put 16 whopping hours on the hour meter this year and if we spent a few over 5000 thats it .i would think there good for a 100 hours before refresh,seems Dereberry ,Teague,Boost power all say that

besides all that, its not 29 hours on the motors anyway because they are not included with the boat. I'm pretty sure that kinda time on the components is not to bad, pretty sure thats nothin for BPM drives.

That boat always one of my favorites. seems like a pretty good price actually.

That's an absolutely beautiful boat.

I wonder how the BPM drive rudder boats handle compared to Six drives and what kind of speeds you would see with a pair of 1300s ?
