You might want to double check but I dont think there is any service needed at 50 hours. Except changing the fluid in the lower end

what i neglected to mention is that the motor is a 2008. does that span of time with no service matter? thanks again.

Yes it does, you need a complete service including water pump, all filters, and oils. Don't forget about the water/fuel seperator.
I don't work on Tohatsu but a yamaha, merc, or zuke would be somewhere between $350-$500 keep in mind this is for a complete service which is what you need for a 2008 even though you only have 50hrs.

It cost anywhere from $5,000 to $8,500.
Depending on which brand you choose to replace it with.


;D :D

I'm only kidding. I have no idea. I know getting my Tohatsu serviced was a real mission. I know it was under $100. But that was just lower unit oil, new seals, motor oil, oil filter, and spark plugs. No water pump. I didn't own it long enough to require a water pump service.

Oh yea, my 'hatsu was a four stroke...

I actually contemplated the 50HP for a minute but the above 59 sec changed my mind.

On a side note, Those engines (hatsu) there is time frame also, not just hours.  If boat sits a while you may want to use suggested time instead of hours.
