Today I ticked the 300 hour mark, 2005 XLV. How much time do you guys have now?


07-08-2008, 10:29 PM
121 hours on a 2007 LSV.... and LOVIN' every minute!!!

07-08-2008, 10:29 PM
Damn!... is 100hrs per year considered normal use?

07-08-2008, 10:30 PM
Just hit 25 last weekend, time for service.

07-08-2008, 10:33 PM
This is the 4th season of use, so seems normal to me. I put 125 hours the first year I had it. It's still real prudy.

I have owned the boat for a year and 3 months and only have 49 hours on it. I need to get with it.

07-08-2008, 10:48 PM
My second year with my boat and around 60 hrs, but we had a bad start to our summer!

07-09-2008, 01:24 PM
bought my '04 LSV in March. I've put almost 50 hours on it thus far. I only wish I could say that it just hit the 300 hour mark. I'm nearing 500 hours

We just passed 65 hours on our 07 LS. This will be our first full season, bought last year in late June. Boat has been in the water way more time than that, but owner likes to anchor and drink beer listening to the radio.

07-09-2008, 01:43 PM
bought with 165 hours last july, now has over 330 hours on it. boat gets regular use best purchase I ever made no regrets. my only regret is not going bigger and newer!!!

07-09-2008, 06:55 PM
Right around 240 hours on an '04 LSV. Got it in August of '04.

07-09-2008, 07:38 PM
38 on the 06 LSV. I bought it with 18 late last year.

07-09-2008, 11:11 PM
Bought my 2001 outback LS with 80 hours on it. Seems the people never used it. I have had it in the water since the end of May and just reached 110 hours tonight. Seems like a lot of hours for a month. Having fun though.

07-09-2008, 11:42 PM
85 hrs bought new last yr in mid July. once school starts season ends :( put 40+hrs on it since may. but my sessions on the lake are only 3hrs long. from when i get off work till sunset. once a week riding, sometimes twice.

07-10-2008, 12:42 AM
Purchased 2007 OB V Dec 1, 2007. I just turned 85 hrs last week.

07-10-2008, 03:29 PM
Don, did you see Ed's thread about Tampa?

07-10-2008, 03:44 PM
I've got 132 hours since purchasing at the end of May 2007. Sounds like alot of you guys need to get off this board and get in the water!! :)

07-10-2008, 05:22 PM
I know, right? If Ed spent as much time surfin' as he does talkin' about it he'd be the best wakesurfer in the world. Oh wait, he IS the best wakesurfer in the world (or at least the most enthusiastic!)

We now have 130hrs on our '08 XLV! ...and just now got the part in to fix the perfect pass. Hallalluia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just under 200 hours on my 2005 XLV. I'd have more, but many of my crewmembers are in their 30's and they keep putting boating as a lower priority than marriage ceremonies, house renovations, having babies, etc. I grow tired of their excuses. :-) I can tell you right now that, when I eventually get married, it will darned well be outside of boating and snowboarding seasons! Why not a nice November ceremony?

07-14-2008, 07:48 PM
I'm divorced with a 21year old son who lives with me! I've got the best of both worlds!!!! It doesn't hurt that my girlfirend loves this stuff more than we do!

07-14-2008, 09:09 PM
Ian, while I've breezed past these times I couldn't agree more. Being born and raised in Thunder Bay Ont., it always blew me away when someone I knew or was related to would have a party or wedding on a long weekend, like we get so many of them!

07-14-2008, 11:49 PM
I laughed good when I read your post.. we are upper 30's no kids.. ALL friends have children and its hard to plan trips with them... lot's of backouts.. I knew exactly what you were talkin about..haha
I have a great 3rd right now, but his wife is due late next month.. hope he can still ride!

07-15-2008, 08:12 PM
I don't really understand this 30something phenomenon.....

My wife and I are in our mid 30's with three kids under 10 and we get out on the boat every weekend and sometimes for 3-4 days in a row. The kids wouldn't have it any other way! Our close friends are the same as us (3 kids) and never miss a chance to hit the water... AND they kick down $80-$100 a day for gas!!!

Maybe we're just lucky.

07-15-2008, 08:49 PM
That's the difference between real water/boat people and posers
