Just turned 322 hours last weekend. Stated the season on the 215 mark 1st week of April after getting the boat back from the dealer. They kept it for the winter to give it it's first season once over. I brought the boat home 26 June 2001...

I didn't buy it to clean it nor just sit and look it. Too much money to not spend every spare moment of the summer weekends in it motors running....

Started the day after Christmas with the new boat. Currently at 85 or so hours not including time on the Nautique pulling the kids wakeboarding, time on the waverunners, and time on the pontoon boat when the phucking starboard engine blew up.

p.s. Hey Too Old, how many hours you got this year?
