I like to use straight 40w oil. Multi-visc oil is great for starting engines when temperatures are low. I never take my boat out when it's freezing, it's always above 60F.

I have two thoughts here:

Being right and being legal are 2 different things.

Just because their insurance doesn't cover it does'nt mean they are not responsible.

On the lake we go to, there are very few surfers. I would say 10 to 1 ratio wake boarders to surfers. And I would say more than 1/2 the wake boarders are behind I/O's.

I had a 93 Sunsetter dd (open bow) and the wake really flattened out nicely at 28+. But, keep in mind it is true that a vdrive makes a larger wake because the engine is in the back, it's not as bad...

I totally agree^^.

Also, I've never been able to figure out why inboards, in general, cost more. They are the simpler, more crude drive system. Maybe it's all marketing.
