When I first got my own outboard motor for my little speed boat, I just assumed that maintenance of this motor would be fairly simple. I would just read an owners’ manual and know what to do right away. Of course, my father would never let me do this because as an experienced fisherman, he knew quite a bit about boats.
He told me that before I chose an outboard motor oil brand or did any kind of maintenance on my motor, I would have to do a lot more research. He explained that getting the opinion of people who had been working with the same motor for years or those who were more experienced was invaluable. I’m glad I listened to him, since I know a lot more about my boat now.
