Clocked hours

Alan Priddy need not answer this question.

PLase enterthe amount of hours days you use your RIBS per year, I am interested because I wonder how much it should affect the choice of engine.

I did about 4 to 500 last year

Not as much as I would like. About the 100-150 hours mark. Have just fitted an new engine hour guage so will know exactly how much I use it this season.

Stuart, it would be unfair of me to answer your question seeing as I only used the boat once last year! Alan P

My ribtec does about 100 hours a year, when its not being borrowed for a month at a time by some geezer in Southampton.

Stuart, ol' chap. You've got an engine here in Cornwall that hasn't clocked a single hour in all the time you've owned it. That's now nearly a year. D'you really want it? Or can I auction it.....and donate the proceeds to the RNLI?

Mike,, I think that the RNLI is fairly well funded at the moment so I'd like to avoid the auction option.

I have this week sent some cash down to St Mawes to pay for the engines relocation plus a donation to the Mike G/Andrew Cox hospitality fund.

Sorry, I know I've been taking the P**s

Best Regards
Stuart

Over the last two years, I have averaged about 200 engine hours per year.

Last year, I did 30hrs, but the boat spent nearly 11 months of that year being repaired after bits kept falling off.....

This year with the new boat, so far I've done 40hrs according to the laptop when plugged into the engine last week, plus another 4hrs on Sunday.
*If* the weather gets any better, I'll probably end up around the 100hr mark at the end of the year - I don't intend to winterise the boat, so it's useable at any time during the winter.

I do about 150 engine hours (over ~30 days) a year.

I would do a lot more if I could!
