    Posted: September-02-2013 at 12:30pm
I only put approx 40 hours on my 98 GT 40 SN engine this summer. It has been sitting for the past month and the oil looks clean -not black at all. Should I change it?
The lake is very low and i have joined at a private club hence not using my boat.

I use synthetic for 2 years. Whats wrong with 40 hours on oil? You should've seen my relatives boat. 5+ years on the oil, pitch black. Changed this spring with Mobil-1 10w-30...

If it were me I'd change it too. I'm pretty sure hours is only half the indicator for an oil change. The other half is time. I would recommend changing your oil once a year at the bare minimum.

Don, your profile doesn't say where you are located (unless I missed it), but it sounds like your boating season is coming to an end for the year (i.e. you're not planning to take the boat out a few more times). Anyway, if it were my boat, I would change the oil and filter to remove any corrosive used oil.

Read this thread.

I don't see a need to change it if you are going to start using it again. But if winterizing, yes change it.

If you're gonna use it more this summer, I would just wait. I'd rather have fresh oil in before you winterize. You've got 10 more hours to ski on it!

I already changed the oil so there's no arguement here, but I do have some questions for future years.

I only use my 1970 for about 6 days a year, and it MAYBE get's about 6hrs of use on it. I'd say it more likely will get about 4hrs of use on the engine.

Should I really be changing engine oil on just 4 hrs of use? ***************er takes 7 quarts.

So here is my take, your 1970 is a classic, you only use it 4 to 6 hours a year so you probably baby it, keep it all shined up and probably want to keep it in good shape. I would factor in the annual oil change as just part of the cost and effort to keep your boat in good running order. Yeah, you could probably go two years (or 12 hours) on one oil change, but it is pretty well documented that used oil becomes acidic and eats at the internal engine parts. Andy (Waterdog) by the way is an oil analysis expert, its what he does for a living, so he has VERY high credibility in my book. So I would say factor in the oil change (time and dollars) as part of the expense of owning your 1970. At the end of the day its at most $50 in parts and 2 hours of time. Pretty cheap insurance IMHO...

BTW, we don't even put that much time on Dad's '63 anymore and I still change the oil at the end of the year. Best chainsaw bar oil I ever get is the waste oil from Dads boat!

Season is done, I am in drought stricken Ca. the ski course has all but dried up. I have joined a private lake and been skiing on a 00 SN.   I will plan to change it. This boat is a mint 98 Ski with 240 hours. Next year due to being in the club I will likely only put 10 hours on my boat and have it for a life time!

We had a big thread a while back on which was best practice. The reason for the change is the by products of combustion mixed with oil will make it slightly acidic. The only thing this will damage is the soft faces of the bearing surface.

I deviate from standards and usually don't change it in the fall. My oil change comes at odd times and I usually only have 25 or 30 hours on the 2nd or 3rd oil change of the season depending on usage. Looks like this year I will probably be right at the 50 mark so I will probably change it during winterization.

If I only did one oil change per season I would just go ahead and do it in the fall.

synthetic lasts so much longer. I have driven 10k miles on synthetic, still had lubrication to it. Our 2007 Suburban is almost to 8k on mobil 1 and the oil life is about 5%, right on par. Synthetic doesnt break down like conventional, also, they put extra low numbers for oil changes so you buy more oil! More oil = more money. I am very comfortable going 2 years on synthetic...

Plus, its like $32 at advacned all the time with good filters...

I just laid up my Tique for the winter this last weekend. With the new job and very little available vacation, I didn't use it much this summer. My wife was up for the summer but said she maybe only put 5 hours on so I did not change the oil. It looked great and did not have any burnt smell.

I don't believe the acidity of the oil is much of a concern unless you have really used the oil to the end of its limits IE. 50+ hours.

Don't know if it is "recommended"???   

I have been running waste oil as bar oil for over 20 years in my Stihl, no issues, never have had to replace any bar or chain related parts. However, maybe that's why the inside of my case is always full of oil...

50 hours is a lot for oil??? Where on earth did you get that??? Cant imagine how many hours it takes to put 3k miles on oil, let alone 8k miles...

You guys really should have seen the oil out of my relative 89 CC. Pitchest black oil I've ever seen. Extremely chalky feeling to it. And even after putting 1 hour on the new Mobil 1 10W-30, the synthetic is already very dark, might have to give it yet another oil change...

I think almost every Correct Craft manual I have looked at says oil change interval is 50 hours, even in 1963 on my Dad's Ski Nautique.

Engine load on a boat is very different then in a car.

This product is a oil replacement tool to replace brake fluid/oil in main pump or sub pump of cars,
which usually requires two people to work together: one person steps on the brake and another person collects the waste oil.
It is a time-consuming and exhausting process. Besides, if two people did not coordinate well,
the one off the car may get dirty oil stained on the floor. This tool solves these problems perfectly.
With the help of our tool, one person can finish the replacing work without dirty oil stained on the floor.

MaterialMetal + plastic
Product tube length80CM
Product work pressure8 kg(appr.)
Product capacityNearly half a liter
Size15 x 6cm /5.91" x  2.36"(appr.)

This is an original unmolested, un-restored, 1968 Correct Craft Mustang, with a 289 c.i. 210 HP Ford engine (approx. 310 hrs), all Correct Craft and Mustand emblems in place and in good condition. Boat has glass windshield (I understand some had Plexiglass, which is not as good as glass). Original owner had boat for 37 years. Boat never sat a year without being used (never in prolonged storage).

The boat was purchased in the fall of 1969 in Connecticut. Boat spent entire life in upstate New York, and registered for the first time in the spring of 1970. The boat led a pampered life, never left in water overnight, and kept in garage when not being used on the water.

The boat still has the ORIGINAL moring cover (actually it’s still in pretty good shape). Oil has been changed every season, it’s recently been tuned up, new battery, new impeller, oil change, shaft aligned, and stuffing box packed. Has galvanized Hylander trailer that goes also, boat and trailer tow fantastic. Boats that have been used in New England and Upstate NY, i.e. cooler climates, get used very little. As opposed to boats being from FL, where it’s humid, and etc. Most older boats from FL or the South have stringer or floor rot. No issues regarding stringers or floor with this boat. Believed to be original prop, strut, and rudder.

I’m selling because I thought I wanted another boat to play with, my wife went nuts, as I already own a 2011 Correct Craft Ski Nautique, a 1977 Correct Craft Martinique, along with 12 motorcycles, a motorhome and numerous other toys. Too much stuff.
