Learning about Boats and Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil

Domo-Online Pic 1 1292013When 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.

Buying Evinrude Oil Before the Trip

evinrudeIt could be (accurately) said that I’m not terribly organized when it comes to family trips. It’s pretty funny because as I sit at my work desk, there’s a post it note for every task that needs to be done and a neat order in which I approach every day’s work. When I get home, that all gets erased and I fall into a lazier person’s habits.

When we were planning our family trip, my husband had an incredible idea that never occurred to any of us: buy the Evinrude oil we needed before we left. Every year, we went up to our shore house and complained on high about the inflated prices of oil in town. My husband finally was the one to think, hey, couldn’t we just buy this beforehand?

Outboard Must-know Info such as Evinrude XD 50 Oil Benefits

tim10If you’re new to outboard engines, you’ll have to educate yourself a little bit on the proper keep of an outboard engine in order to guarantee you are getting the most for your money. It’s often misinformation that leads to engines seizing rather than it being a problem with the engine itself. Before anything else, learn what you need to put into your engine.

The first thing to find out is what your fuel/oil ratio is for your outboard. Most manufactured before 1964 need 24:1 while 2-stroke outboards since then require a 50:1 fuel to oil mixture. Using the right oil, such as Evinrude xd50 oil, is imperative. Using the wrong oil can cause extreme problems and even ruin an engine in extreme cases.

Learn About Outboard Motors and Evinrude Oil

79rude70If you’re just getting into boating, the different jargon concerning motors and other boat accessories can sound the same. Outboard motor is likely something you have heard, but it might not bring any images to mind when you try to picture it. Before you can own and operate a boat to the best of your ability, you will have to understand the basics about how they are made.
An outboard motor propels a boat forward, running well on Evinrude oil. These motors are the most common method for pushing small boats forward. The motor includes an engine, gearbox, and propeller or jet drive. They do more than just motorize a boat. They also control the watercraft’s direction when under power.

Sticking with Evinrude Outboard Oil

xd30_group-low-rezI’m definitely the type of person who is very set in his ways. When I start doing something, I stick to it, no matter what that might entail. I’m not a quitter and I’m not one who is very willing to change from routine, unless it is absolutely necessary. I enjoy living in a state of comfort, where things in my life don’t ever get too far outside of my control.

One way that I show this trait is through brand loyalty. For instance, I am absolutely adamant that only Evinrude outboard oil is used on my boat. I’ve gotten great performance out of Evinrude products and I don’t have any intention of changing things up for any reason, because I’m a firm believer that you should stick with what works.

Evinrude Oil for Lake Fishing

mediumWhen I was younger and living in Wisconsin, I used to go ice fishing fairly frequently with my father in the winters. Though it got me interested in fishing, I would often hear about some of my friends who would go to visit the Great Lakes and go fishing on their parents’ boats. We didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up, so I was always a little jealous.

In my adulthood, I’ve got a high-paying job and more than enough money for a boat, so one of my favorite things to do is to take my dad on fishing trips, just like he did for me. However, instead of going ice fishing, we can load up my boat with Evinrude oil and take it out on a lake nearby so that our fishing experience can be even more exciting, and a lot less cold.

Yamaha Oil and Keyboards

23328877_CP_photoI’ve been playing the piano since I was young. I started out playing it on a grand piano but eventually I decided that I had a preference for keyboards. After years and years of playing the keyboards, I’ve determined that Yamaha keyboards are my absolute favorite ones, and I never purchase keyboards or accessories that are developed by anyone else.

When I got a boat, I decided I’d be able to make use of my support for Yamaha once again. I figured that if I could trust Yamaha to make all of my musical instruments, I could also trust them to be the ones who make the oil that I would use in my boat. That’s the ultimate reason why I choose to purchase Yamaha oil over the other options out there.

Isolated Boating Thanks to Evinrude XD 100 Oil

r1069140_12600614Like a lot of my friends, I like to spend a decent amount of time at concerts and music festivals because there’s a certain type of camaraderie that can be developed with strangers when you’re in a crowd together sharing an experience regarding musical artists that you like. However, I like to take breaks from these instances every now and then because too many crowds can be overwhelming.

When I start to feel that way, I usually prefer to just hang out with a few close friends and go somewhere isolated. Sometimes we go camping, but if the weather’s right, our favorite thing to do is to go boating together. I usually load my boat up with Evinrude XD 100 oil and then we’ll find a lake or a river somewhere and boat around for a while.

From Kayaking to Boating with Evinrude Johnson 2 Stroke Outboard Oil

kayakersBoatI’ve always been a huge fan of spending time out on the water. Recently, I’ve been going kayaking a lot more often, which has been a lot of fun and really good exercise. However, kayaking can be a little bit exhausting and I had been thinking for a while about getting something more relaxing to do out on the water, which is why I bought a boat.

I still go kayaking frequently, but now I spend some of my weekends taking the boat out with a few friends and just cruising around and having a relaxing time with some music and a few drinks. I make sure to keep Evinrude Johnson 2 stroke outboard oil on hand since I’ve been going out boating quite often and want to make the most of the summer.
