Out of curiosity, what is the most hours you have put on your boat in one season? Comments welcome!

I only have one season to judge, but my guess is next year if I make it to TN I’ll have more than the 40 I did this year...

I think our first year we put like 55hrs or something like that on it. Something like 10hrs last year, and then nearly 50 again this year.

Having a baby aboard really puts the kabosh on cruising.

I don't have seasons, but usually 100-125 per year.

In 2017 we put more than 50, this summer we put 6 or 7 and most of it was to burn the fuel that was sitting on the tank since June of 2018:eek:

The skin has got more than 50 this season though

I think around 25 since most of the time we are in a cove or floating.

I went from 120 last season, down to 50 this year, but we made the Bimini trip last season which ran our hours up trolling.

So the best was the first year with the boat at 55 hours. Second year we were down to 40 and this year back to 50. Which I consider pretty good up here in Maine. It also doesn’t account for the days at the sand bar!

I bought a 2015 SX210 this year with only 15hrs on it. Of course we put around 40hrs more on it this summer.

40-50/season. We mostly do a lot of floating in the cove or at the beach.

I’m definitely on the high end...in Miami, florida we don’t have seasons, so if you’re not careful you can rack up hours yearly very easily....I put 80+ hours on my new boat in the first 5 months! 🥴

Bought the boat in March with 50hours on it, just put it in storage for the winter at 118hours. The first season was a blast, now onto winter sports.

almost 100 hours in a year and a half but we do hang out at the sand bar a lot and take turns on the skis 🛥, I just noticed that there isn’t a jet ski emoji 😳 oh no !!!!
