That motor had the most hours. The other was done last winter. It had a small skip when we pulled back in to Ft Lauderdale but it ran fine to winterize it before we left. It is coming out of the boat for a refresh Monday, it has enough hours for that and before something big blows up and turns it into a big job.

Didn't you blow up motors within hours of getting a boat before?

You won't squeeze out more than 200 hours out of engine that puts out more than 950 HP's Jeff.
