I have an '01 205V with the 310 motor. My oil pressure at idle speed is around 40. The oil pressure maxes out when I get up to planing speed and stays up there. Is this normal?

doesn't sound normal to me. Check your level, over or under will influence pressure. My 209 idles around 40 and gets as high as 80 under load, from what I can remember.

I checked the oil after the dealer changed it. It was just slightly high, less than 1/2 a quart. I just got the boat at the end of last season and can't remember how high the oil pressure was when I used it for a few hours last year.

Can anybody else tell me how high their oil pressure runs?

For me, 40/80 at idle/cruise RPM.

Well I called my local dealer service department and told the guy all the specifics about my boat. 2001 Prostar 205V with the 310 motor etc. and what my gauge was reading.

He told me "I wouldn't worry about it".

He then said "You have a Chevy, right?"
He then asked "Is it a Mastercraft?"

I felt pretty good about the conversation.
