How many hours have you put on the boat?
I said Jan 08, I meant Jan 09. So I had it serviced in Jan 09 and I ran it at least a few times a week till about June of this year and then the starter went out on me. So then its been out of the water for the past 4 months. then a few weeks ago I had the starter rebuilt and now its ready to go again. its just a little 40 hp suzuki on a 16ft skiff. I really don't feel like spending money to have it serviced right now. do you think I can get a good 6 more months out of the motor befor having to have it serviced again?

Sounds to me like you are takign care of it. Change the oil and then get a service on it in march/april. I put mine in once a year for a full service. plugs, lube job ect..


my bro in law does it on his for the last 10 years and his 115 runs like new.

If you are concerned about the $$$,

then do it yourself. There is nothing difficult about greasing the engine, changing the oil if 4 stroke, changing the lower unit oil, or installing a water pump, and changing the plugs out. Just takes a little time, planning, and a whole lot less money.
