How Many Hours This Season????

I was wondering what the average amount of engine hours forum members have done this season. I have clocked up 60hrs since the end of May and I was curious to see if I am under using my rib !!!!!

Nah, mine is probably about the same. Plenty of water time though. After buying a house fuel has had to come 2nd this year.

About 10 hours I guess
Hardboat - which has spent more time in the boatyard being fixed than on the water - well at least its been used as a deposit now, and just waiting on my new baby to be delivered next year

Quiet Year.

About 75 hrs so far this year. Started in February. well under what I normally achieve due to changing boat in August. I normally get 50 + hours in in August on its own.
I'm not putting the boat to bed until the real bad weather kicks in and I'm guessing that won't be until December if last year is anything to go by. Even then she'll be dragged out when the conditions are favourable.

Haven't checked the new boat but the old one had about 60 on it and the new one has done at least that so roughly 120 hrs .

I thought about 100 a season was average ,

so what are the main reasons for not using the boat much

1 Fuel cost

2 live to far from the water

3 just too busy at work or lack of time

1&3 i think are the great British problem
