Skat,
I asked the same thing of the Merc dealer I bought a new Bravo from last spring. He says to me "it comes with a 1 year warrantee" so I answer "what do I do with the other 5 months'"(he knew exactly what I was talking about) and answers "I guess it's for the people in Florida":mad
Of course this all took place AFTER it was paid for in full I guess that the way it be:rolleyes
Actually 100 hours would be rather nice I mean the damned thing better run 100 for what they cost

Yep, my puny 55 hours used up over 900 gallons

At least NH gives us an $.18 road tax rebate if we keep receipts and file each year.

Put 108 hours on last year at Center HIll Lake in TN. This year we only put about 30 hours on in CA. Shows you what the rat race of CA can do to you. I did add a Whipple system to my HP500EFI tho.. thats the good new. I am amazed at some of the hours you guys log. Hopefully next year well be in TN permanately

dont have a gauge, if i had to guess, driving around for an hour at least most days of the week, probably over 150hrs.

boat has over 1300 same engine, 1990, not rebult (hopefully some new parts will find their way into her over the winter...)
