Is there a way to tell how many hours are on an Outboard, if the previous owners didnt keep detailed maintenance records?
My boat has a 1998 Yamaha Vmax on it. Since my uncle owned it previous to me, and he is a mechanic, he did most of the maintenance on the engine himself, and didnt really keep any records of this. I took it to Ronnie's back in June and told him, they did a 200hr service on it.
Do the motors have any indicator on them as to the ammount of hours? IF not, what would be a general best guess on a 10 year old motor that maybe gets used twice a month on average.
