2015 115 etec, 1006 hours. 0 issues. Maintenance every 300 hours, 100% saltwater.
A friend who operates rental boats in AK repowered one of his boats with over 5,000 hours because he figured it was about time, not because of engine troubles. Engines that are used often and maintained regularly can run for a very, very long time.All these high hours Hondas in here have me feeling pretty awesome about the 700hr BF225 I just bought. That thing should last me quite a long time from the sounds of it.
I have twin 200 hpdi Yamaha's with appx 400 hours each(2002). When I bought the boat they had 60 hours. No motor problems other than maintenance. Replaced one tilt relay and need to do the other. Repaired trim/tilt cylinders on one last year and did other one this year. Am OCD with my fuel & filters. Seem to be good on fuel and plenty of HP. Will run them till they quit. Seems the 250 hpdi's were a problem.Buddy of mine just bought a boat with twin HPDI’s. Being 2-strokes gave him pause, but his research indicated they are superb motors.
My 9.9 Yammie kicker was dead as a doornail once I got onto the water Friday, (turned out to be a rotted battery cable) so I put 5 hours on the main trolling for salmon. Normally I prefer to NOT put hours on the main like that.... reading this thread makes me wonder why I worry!
Tight lines and smooth runnin’ guys.
