Just courious, why would you be concered about depth when floating? I guess if your not achored, then you will drift. I always make a point to anchor so that I dont drift, and feel confident that I wont end up floating into a weed forest

I believe when the key is in the ignition on position the hours will run, when the key is in accessory mode the hours will not run.

The OP is leaving the boat on with the key in the "ignition on" position.

No I don't think that is correct for the newer boats. In my 2012 and 2013 I have always left the key in the ignition on position, never the accessory position, and as mentioned have never had the hours count. I left it on overnight once, luckily the boat still started in the morning.

Maybe it has to do with which Engine/ECM the boat has?

It shouldn't matter. No way it should be counting running hours when the motor isn't running.

I may be mistaken but the only boats I've heard of that do this are MB's.

I wanted to update everyone, I was mistaken. I played with it a lot a kept a paper log (since my memory isn't great) and it does appear that it is only counting when the engine is on. I just can't believe in 2 months I have put over 50 hours on the engine.

Sorry for the noobie question and thanks for everyones reply. I am loving the boat and the community. If anyone is in the Nashville area and get out on Percy Priest feel free to send me a PM. I would love to meet some new friends and hopefully learn a lot.

Thanks Again!

They rack up quick when you actually use it - we did over 100 in less than 4 months. It happens when you are enjoying it.
