Re: 5900 Engine Hours on Ten Year-Old Boat

I'd rather have a 10 yr old motor with 5900 hours than a 30 year old motor with 5900 hours. I've just found with boat and car "mechanicals" that being used is the best thing for them rather than sitting.

Re: 5900 Engine Hours on Ten Year-Old Boat

I'm in the school that thinks it is better to run a diesel than to let it sit. I'd be more worried about the older boat with the very low hour original engine than the same boat with 4000 hours on the engine.
