Personally I'd just go with the carlube oil its the same grade and I'm sure it wont bother the oil wether its in a car or a boat.
I don't buy the whole marine oil is different bollocks oil is oil & if the water is in the gearbox then your in bother anyway

I'd forget these little tubes and opt for the 1 litre but with Quicksilver pump dispenser.
