When you get a boat for the first time, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed with all of the information that you need to know. Some people purchase a boat without considering how much they should know about boating beforehand. You should know all of the laws about boating and fishing in your area, obviously, before you take a boat somewhere you’re not supposed to.
Additionally, you should learn a bit about your boat’s maintenance and the type of oil it takes. Some research should be done to determine what the best brand of oil is for your particular engine. I exclusively use Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil, but I had to make sure to put the time in to figure this out so that I could ensure that my boat was running the best it possibly could.
