Had a Johnson Fast-strike 150 that was 20 years old when I sold it. It had over 1500 hours on it. I had a few electronic parts go bad on the motor. I never had anything mechanical go bad on the outboard. I did wear the axle out and had to replace that.
I took good care of the boat, only used E free gas, and used it every month of the year. You get out of it what you put into it. I bought a new one 2 years ago. It will last me 20 year also. I have a Mercury 150 4 stroke now.
