[QUOTE=Brian;693692]I really don't know what willk is talking about-diesels need a lot of maintenance indeed!
I haven't touched mine (well hardly anyway) for over 2 years now.
Inboards are rugged beasts
Errr no there not typical rib engines are highly tuned complicated beasts that need lots of love & attention coupled to a sterndrive they need lots of maintenance
Stick to your current regime & your in for some BIG bills
I've had 6 diesel engined boats & currently own 2 with 3 engines between them compared to an outboard they are high maintenance
