I hear ya, but take my engine for example. I daysail once or twice a week, it takes 10 minutes to get out of the marina, then I hoist the sails, and then another 10 minutes to get back into the slip. So let's say I run the engine 30 minutes a week, times 52 weeks a year, that's only 26 hours a year, over 20 years it's like only 500 hours. How is this a problem? I also have 1954 Chevy truck that I hardly ever drive; it has 45k original miles. should I be worried that the engine is going to rust up sitting in driveway? Does the low mileage make it less valuable? I think not.
