Re: engine hours

The other advantage to running engine at the dock instead of going out into open ocean to run her is that there is no risk to the boat (or me) if the engine stalls at the dock. If the engine stalls...

I only have a 20 hp yanmar and can run full throttle in gear (fwd or rev) and be ok at the dock. I figure I am putting about 500 lbs force on the dock lines. Just hope nothing lets go and I turn...

Re: engine hours

Paulo,
Are you saying every 15 days it would be good to run the engine in gear (fwd and rev) for 15 minutes? This could be done while tied to the dock.

Building codes will not tell you how to build the structure, only how much load psf and amount of allowable deflection. The Engineer of Record is responsible for the design.
