When I first got a boat of my own, I was determined to do everything that I could to take care of it and keep it in good condition. I knew too many people who didn’t bother to take great care of their boats and then got into trouble with their engines dying out in the middle of a lake or a bay. I never wanted to have any problems of that sort, especially when they might be prevented.
I made sure to keep my boat running well by checking the outboard engine on a regular basis. I kept up with regular maintenance and made sure to change my oil every season by draining the old oil and adding the Yamaha oil that my boat would need. By following all of these safety precautions I have managed to keep my outboard running well over the course of many years.
