How many hours can you expect out of your two stroke motors ? As my mate that I fish with has cat with twin 70s that are constantly wet when on the plane .old mate at the boat show said it halves their lives .Is this bs .someone would have experienced it . Thanks .half of how many
He does not know what he is talking about.
Boat motors are made to be ion the water, it is natural that they will get wet(not submerged)
Engine life depends on the operator, how well he services it, how well he cleans it after use.
I had 150 Yam 2 stroke that did well over 6000 hours with no major work in that time frame. Then another bloke might only get 1000 hours if he does not look after it.
Big hint mate. Beware of this place, lots of "know it alls" who spend countless hours giving ill informed advice (the ones with thousands of posts who have nothing better to do), they are the ones that need a good stirring up from time to time, they bite worse than white pointers, funny as hell to see the reactions.......
My mate owned the boat prior to me and he did charters out of it. The boat was used 3 or 4 times a week and clocked up the hours quite quickly.
Have some ab diver friends with Yam 2 strokes and the motors they have on at the moment have done around 4500 with no issues.
For the average fisho, these hours would be highly unlikely in a life time of fishing. I know I only do around 100 per year, that would mean I would have to use the boat for 60 years before clocking those figures. Corrosion would be the issue long before motor wear in that case.
DougGrant.... sure did! Getting a bite means using the right bait........
