How many hours is too many for an outboard in saltwater? Also, I have been told the general rule of thumb is not to buy an outboard that is more than 10 yrs old with out new powerheads???? Thought or suggestions?

I've heard 300 hours is about the time when most O/B's seem to want to lay down.
No way... if an outboard is taken care of 1000-1500 hours easy...
