All,

I am looking at a boat with a Yamaha that has 770 hours on it. Any thoughts on how reliable these motors are and how many hours I may be able to get out of it. Looks very well maintained. I am more familiar with the bigger motors than these small ones. Will be my first poling skiff.

People commonly site something like 2000 hours as a reasonable expected life for a good outboard. For an outboard on a small skiff, it would take most of us many, many years to run 1300 more hours on that motor. I think it's a sign of "good use" for a 2012 motor that it has 700 hours, probably better than my 2010 that has only 200 hours.
