Got my 2014 with zero hours on it. Started this season at 72 hrs. So far this season we are now sitting at 74 hrs..... LOL really need to use it more. Just don't have the time.

Bought my boat in early '16 with 330 hours, I just rolled over 580.

My season is taking a hit because they are draining my river for a month

IMG_7565.JPG.12a0e61910f9301caa8617fbf6a3f9db.JPGBought right around 4/1 and now 121 hours ...crazy thing is if you look at diacomm data roughly 80 hours are idle or around idle speed....this not turning boat off when ballasted is really adding up!!!

@cripper - Shut it off. You'll be fine. Especially if it's only for a short period of time. We've spent a lot of time ballasted with the engine off. No issues yet. It's not worth putting all of those extra hours on the boat.

There is a bulletin saying drain rams IF your going to have engine off for greater than 15 min.   So turn it off between riders, no worries.

That's not just floating idle hours. That is also the time you spend idling back to your rider to pick them up etc. I always turn my boat off when not moving and was surprised to see how many idle hours I had on my boat till I figured out it was all the time slowly returning to rider and them setting up etc.

Averaging 150hrs/yr for 23 years!  That is freaking awesome!

We ordered our '17 Supreme s238 in March, picked up from our dealer on May 24th. We just rolled over 60 hours before I came back to work. Hoping to get another 10 hours on it before the end of the season which would be a great year for us in Northern Canada where our season really only lasts from mid May to mid September on a good year!

I bought the boat late summer 2014 with 22 hours on it. Didn't use it to much last year.

this year since memorial weekend I don't think I've missed one weekend without being on the water. 

Part of such low hours is the engine isn't running if the boat isn't moving.

I shut mine off too when switching riders or chilling, that definately makes a difference on hours. It can add up quickly. Will still get well over 100hrs this summer, but I am out every weekend on either Sat or Sun (only missed one all summer) and also just about every Weds evening is "Wakesurf Weds", great way to break up the work week and be stress free for a few hours!

So the previous owner is the culprit!  Good your getting to use it.    No point having one of these and letting it set.

We do same thing, shut it down between riders.   That alone can be an hour a day

I agree, I know for my boat anyway (you have to remember I have a way longer fill time on my ballast) lunch and between riders, we will be out for 8 hours but only have the engine running 4-4.5 hours of that with everything and switch time.

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
