I made an oil drain apparatus for the boat that worked pretty well. I bought a flexible rubber pan that holds one gallon, drilled a hole in the bottom edge of the side. Put a hose in the hole and ran it out the back through the drain hole into a gallon jug. Only lost about 2 ounces of oil when my caulking job around the tube wasn't done as well as I thought. I have pix if anyone is interested. My wife will help me post them as I struggle with that!!I used one of the pumping cans in the past with my sailboat and never liked it as you could never get all the oil out.

    Hi Tom, we're always open to new ideas and yes, we would like very much to see your setup .

    Probably the easiest way to put the pictures on the site is to attach them to a post. If you need a little assistance with doing that, click here for a little tutorial.

    Take care,
    WetWilly

    Hello,
    I just bought a 1992 Mariah Diablo with 3.0 l Mercruiser. Where could I find an owners manual for this boat? Thanks

    Not sure why you posted this query here in a 11 yr old thread but in any event, read the STICKY at the top of the Introduction forum
