Needs all of it-if you look on Brownspoint it'll give you the age from the serial number.

I'd be more interested in hours run and condition than age.

Been to boat and turned on ignition, and the needle only went up to the first mark ,,,, tenth, then dropped down did it everytime the same so dont no how accurate gauge reads. but engine looks in very good fettle starts easy and sounds great no smoke or anything........ so if the needle is under the one does that mean that it has done less than 100 hours, or are the tachos known to read wrong ...i spose i worry too much.... cheers ,regards
