Engine Hours ?  The reason there is such a difference of engine hours is simple. When first bought the boat came with a single engine (Honda 225)  after a while the owner found the boat was just not performing to his liking, felt it needed more power and the one engine was working hard and burning fuel to obtain the speed he wanted. SOLUTION  double up, so he bought a twin of the same power and style. The boat now easily reaches desired speed and each engine is working less to obtain a proper cruising speed without burning a great deal more fuel. 

Boat is currently on the hard at Lions Bay Marina  in Howe Sound,  morage spot can be transfered if desired.
