So, you’re looking to buy a used boat, but you’re not sure about the hours it has. Or, you’re taking care of your new boat and you have no idea what hours mean in terms of intervals for diesel engine maintenance and repairs. Marine engine hours are the hours your engine has been running since it was new. Many newer engines have a gauge for hours, much like one that shows you miles sailed. For older boats, you will need a computer to pull the marine engine hours.
