Why is it infeasible to rack up closer to 90 hrs a season on it for the first 11 years?
If the hrs have actually been the time when it's in the water, it's only 18 five hr days a season. IF that is how it's wired, and driven for two hours each time, has an hour of bobbing around skiers, is launched and spends half an hour on the pontoon whilst people faff with kit, and half an hour turned on whilst being rinsed down and tidied up on the trailer it could be reading double its actual hours.
