WOW Thanks for all your replies. I realized that I only mentioned my previous boat and not my new Bennington. I took delivery in Sept 2018 and now have 70 hours on her. I use my boat a lot for fishing so for sure I average probably 4-6 hours on-board for every hour engine run time. It is always fun riding, fishing, or just floating enjoying the lake with family and friends.
We have one that seems to not want to leave, we named it Charlotte as it always seems to be weaving or maintaining its web all the time!41 hours on my Merc 90 4stroke so far and hasn't missed a beat. My minor problem at the marina has been spiders. However, I have kept them at bay with insecticide. Just part of the deal.
