One of the more basic but also most important and occasionally overlooked functions in WheelHouse, is the Update Runtimes feature. Though the majority of maintenance in the program is calendar driven and not dependent upon runtime entry, some of the more critical equipment (main engines, generators, etc.) maintenance is reliant upon this manually input data. Obviously, the frequency at which the boat is used ultimately determines how often the runtimes need to be entered into WheelHouse, so since most of these hourly service intervals are set for at least 200 hours, entering runtimes shouldn’t result in too much additional input.
As with most other aspects of WheelHouse, entering runtimes is fairly straightforward, simply click on Update Runtimes from the Home page of the vessel as shown:
