Let's post total and average per year. Get out your calculators or take off your shoes if you're from TX. :)

2008 OBV: 285 total or 95 per year
2012 Mojo: Zero, but I plan to change that REAL soon!

430 hours on the boat.
115 average per summer.

I anticipate a slow down in average hours but who knows.

Bought June 2006 @175 hrs
Now @ 375 hours

However, new engine at about 225 hours in 2008 so I'm more like 150 now.

Bought winter Jan of 2010 with 618hrs and I now have 800ish. I figure that I can actually double my run time for amount of time we actually spend on the water.

BTW Hoot good to see that you are still alive:o

Bought our boat in June 2010 with 0 hours on it and she now has like 62 or something. Didn't get to use the boat that much last year as my wife was pregnant. Looking forward to getting out a lot this year and getting the baby on the boat.

bought my '06 at the end of '07 with 96 hrs on it. was the first '06 20ssv and supra's brochure boat. it now has 320hrs on it. think that's around 50 a year, but we only put around 20 on it last year and 30 the year before due to weather and divorce. the prior 2 years, it was 80-90 a year.

thinking gas prices this summer will affect hours as well. I see the tube I do have left ending up on cl to avoid any gas towing that thing around :)

Bought ours in 09 with .2 hours.

Total 168 hrs
First year was 20hr break in 50hr use
Second year was 125 total 50 hr use
Last year was 168 total with 48 hr use

We spend all day on the lake each time we go and i tend to shut the engine off anytime not pulling someone to keep the hours down but last year we didnt even get the season started till end of June so actually last season we put the most riding hours on her.

Bought ours in November 2010 with 28 hrs. Road it for about 2 hrs. the weekend we picked it up, then winterized it.
2011 was a good year we boarded from March til end of November. Boat now has 152 hrs. so that was 122 hrs. last year. Almost all pulling hours, we start boarding about 100 yards from where we put in at.

Bought August 2010 0 hours got 10 hours on it in 2010 and then had it serviced & winterized.
Currently 62 hours so about 52 last year doesn't really reflect time on water as we spent lots of time anchored and we kept fairly close to the lauch area so run time was pretty much all tow time.

Hoping to get more time in this year, but it hasn't started as we'd hoped. Boat is currently in storage until I get some concrete work done (now parking pad and extending existing driveway) but we're into our second delay on that...

We rolled over 300 hours in february last year so we put 240 hours on last year alone. Pretty crazy, as were my gas receipts and me and my brother split gas in that i fill up one time he fills up the next.

I'm willing to bet that those of you in the warmer climates easily rack up the hours faster than the owners up in the northern states do. (lucky bastids)

Last few years, at least for me, the season didn't really start until about the first of July and lasted through mid September. I'd like to get at least 20 hours a month, but I know that's gonna be a lotta gas $$ this year!

sadly we only have 40 hrs on our boat but 2010 all it did was rain and 2011 we got summer late...end of july and i was laid off for 2 months so i was conserving money.

Hope all is well now Dru and got the fingers crossed that you can get plenty of time on the water this season
