I picked it up in March and it has sat for the past 4 weeks. Right now it has 102 hours. 1.3 hours on it at pick up.

They say the average in Cali is 100 hours a year, the rest of the country is 60 hours a year.

540 in 2 1/2 years. Guess I'm way above average

Probably 200 this season...

Yahoo Bill J, nice!
I can't keep track anymore. It's at 972 last weekend. The boat is 51 months old. So, the average for the 4 years has been pretty steady at about 225/year.
BTW, shouldn't a "proven to be reliable" boat be worth more the one that is not proven?

I'm in the UK and am happy if I can clock up 100+ hours in a year. Last year I got 159. This year I only managed about 60 hours which is poor.

Still think there is a guy selling a 93 MC on here with 185 hours, now theres a waste if ever I saw one!!

I have heard rumors of guys, running up close to a thousand hour a year. I would think that that would be the pro's who are blessed to ride every day. Its good t see that most are using there rides on a regular basis. I hate to see those guys who let a boat sit to collect dust.

Boat has spent about 23 months in the water over the last four years. Right now I have 429 hours on it.
I do about 100 hours a season, 5-6 months per season in NJ. Not to shabby!

I put 240 hrs on my 2003 Super Air TE in my first season.. Then I changed jobs and put 80 hrs. on it this year.....work sux! If you are going to drop that kind of jack on these boats you better use it. Just my two cents. It sucks when I here about people who can't use their toys.

After hearing all this I feel like one of the ones that lets my boat collect dust. We picked our new '04 SSV, with 1.5 hours on it, up at the end of June and had in winterized in mid October with about 35 on it (we live in Michigan, short season). The dealership said that was a lot for this year. Even though the weather was not the best this year I still feel that it is really low, then after everyone elses stories with their hours I know it is low. There is always next year.

98 hours in 4 months on a Malibu VLX. No winterization, wakeboard all year round. New impeller after 80 hours (not necessary, but did it anyway), gear oil change after 80 hours, engine oil change at 20, 50, and 80 hours. Next gear oil change at 120hrs, impeller at 200 hours, engine oil at 120 hours.

We put on almost 300 on ours up here in illinois.
We usually ride for 4-5 hours at least 3 times a week. Our season this year was April 7th to oct. 19th.
