We're at 570. On our 2003 X30. I think about 90 is average.

Depends where you live, I guess. Some seasons are a lot shorter than others.

I live close to the lake, and have a pretty good schedule, so that may account for 468 hours on my 05 VLX. Picked it up in Feb. 2005 (17 months ago). Yea, love my baby, and my crew!

I think average is a relative term. If you live in a warm area you can use it longer likewise less for colder area, we use ours from mid May to mid September average about 60 hrs. and were 12 miles from lake.

we usually get about 100 hrs a year....
I think when you say average maybe on this site it is 100 + hrs per year, but if you average over all the inboard boat owners I can guarantee you it is much less than 100 hrs a year. You just have the actual hard core folks on here....

Geez, and I thought I was really rackin' them up. We got the MC the first week in June, and have about 65 hours on it since we got it. I live on the lake, and work for myself, so I get to board a ton. However, here in North Central Washington our season is short. We hardly think about wakeboarding until the 1st of May, and by the 1st of October we are taking one last pull before we dust off the snowmobiles. I figure 20-30 hours a month for us, times a maximum of 5 months, would put us 125 or so for an average season.

Matt, when you're putting in sets behind that X-Star during November in Orlando, I'm up here chest deep in snow!

On the other end of the scale....since spring 2003 we've averaged just over 50 hours per season. Doesn't really justify having a boat, but I can't hardly think of returning to life without it. We live 1/2 hour from a great winter lake, and 5+ hours from a good summer lake. Boating and riding is very important to us, but there are other important things in our lives right now, too.

If we logged 300 hours in a year, it would sure be fun and hell yeah, we would probably be actually able to ride worth a damn, but I wonder how many other things in our lives we'd have to give up. SOME of the other stuff is important too.

115 on mine, picked it up in May

100 hours From May 1st until now. I'll probably use it through winter too so I'll guess around 150 to 200 hours per year.

Whats the most hours anyone has on say a 2000 or newer boat. Are the drivetrains of the newer boats rated to go further/last longer. I got 600 on my 86 supra, put 50 on this year but missed half the michigan season.

I asked a dealer this question and he said obviously depends on area but in the Northwest around 50 hours is about average for most boats. Our season is shorter than a lot of places but I love snow boarding also so I don't mind when the white stuff starts falling.
