I just bought this boat and the PO started it for me before I bought it.
Started up great with a questionable battery.
He serviced it and weathered it before storing last winter although the spark plugs and gear oil hadnt been changed in 3 years but he said they had minimal run time.
I just pulled the screw to drain the gear oil and water came out 1st before the gear oil followed.
Water was very clear, about 1/4 cup of water.
Is this normal? I would think not.
I did however wash the boat and outboard 3 days before I started the drain and fill procedure.
Is this water possibly from washing the unit?
Where would it get in at?
I was very careful when washing the unit and didnt use high pressure .
