Re: Engine cost per hr of operation

Commercial diesels will easily run 20k hours, but I doubt the average sailboat diesel will... the worst thing for them is not being used.
I don't think your 5000 hours is that far off for a number to use for prediction.
I seldom see a sailboat that has that near many hours on it...
