Sea-going engines are similar to their land-borne cousins, but they are quite different in their environment and how they are operated. Marine engines are often situated in holds with little air for cooling and little room for maintenance. Some are treated to splashing bilge water and use seawater for cooling. These are all factors to consider when analyzing the oil.
Does sitting over the winter cause corrosion? Are you changing the oil often enough (or too often)? Is water getting into the oil supply? Oil analysis can help you understand your engine’s condition and give you peace of mind as you set out for a cruise. From small, gas-fueled engines to gigantic diesels, we have averages available for determining your engine’s health. Don’t put your fate at the mercy of the sea — get your free test kit today!
