Just came across a skiff where the price is in my range but it's got a 2012 90 Yammy 4-stroke with 580 hours.

I'm assuming that something with that kind of hours is a guide's boat. I'm a little leery of that number.

Or does it not matter if it's well maintained?

I have thousands of hours on a few merc 4 stokes that get beat to hell in the duck marshes and has only skipped a beat once.

The pee tube in the head got corroded shut. Other than that...flawless

In reality, 580 is only 10% of daylight hours in two years. Use your boat once a weekend for two years and you have that many hours.

I would rather buy a 5 year old motor with 800 hours than a 5 year old motor with 100 hours. As long as its been serviced regularly.
