That’s nothing.
Average use is 80-100 year.

Not an issue as long as it's been well maintained.

Not necessarily. Take mine for example. Only 60 hours in a year and a half and I use it 2 to 3 times a week year round. Local lakes are small so it don’t run long to reach where I’m going.

In spite of the low hours, I would have the motor checked out by an independent, including a compression check. That will also tell you if it needs carb rebuild. A lean sneeze at idle will also tell you a lot.

350-400 mid high hours. Some motors last well past 1,000. Some pop before 200. Depends on how it's maintenaines, & how it's used (or abused).

TMD11111 that comes out to 20 minutes a trip. Boy that is a small lake ,backing off trailer and putting on trailer
to and from fishing spot. Don't think that would be normal. LOL.

It is when the lake I fish is only 11% full. Yes we're hurting for water out here.

The average hours a year are 40 so I would say no
