Any of you guys have an idea of what operation and maintenance costs by the hour are for your boat? I'm not counting fuel costs.
Just trying to figure things such as: maint costs both major and minor and depreciation that can be attributed to hours.
Here are some rough numbers I came up with. Lets assume that you can go 1000hrs before needing major motor/tranny/vinyl repair. Which all together would cost $10k. Now lets assume that each hr on your boat costs $20 in deprecation. This is hard and I have no real basis but assume I was buying someone's used G23 identical boats 1 had 100hrs and 1 had 50hrs I'd pay atleast $1000 more for the one with 50 just because.
Lastly lets throw in $5 an hr for oil changes both tranny and motor and other incidentals that may come up. By my math it's $35/hr in just O&M!
So with that when my buddy asks should we take my boat or yours I know what my answer will be!
