Last weekend, I celebrated Father’s Day with my family. As so often seems to come up in a family of people with boats, we started talking about boat maintenance, different types of oil, and what would work best for what type of boat. These topics are always difficult ones in my family because no one really agrees on any of it.
For example, my brother started using Optimax oil in his boat this year because one of his friends absolutely swears by it. My father sees the oil as unnecessary unless you have a really high powered boat. The rest of us tried to educate him on using the proper oil in your boat, regardless of performance level or horesepower.
