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?

No way... if an outboard is taken care of 1000-1500 hours easy...
Even up 2000 is not unheard of if cared for properly.
