Just the right filter a NAPA 1069(or equivalent) and 15w40 oil.
Then, get back on the water and break it in some more!

NAPA is a local auto parts store, maybe they aren't in your area. If you go to any auto parts store, and tell them what motor you have in terms of liters/mfg. they should be able to match you up. Sometimes they can cross-referrence numbers, in which case they may have a national database and be able to cross the NAPA number I gave you. OR... you could buy one from your dealer.
so you still havent told me what a napa 1069 is. i know what napa is and 1069 doesnt come up on there site

1069 is the part number for the oil filter. I pick them up on a regular basis using this number. Maybe they changed something.

I go to Walmart to buy my filter - and oil. I would get a good oil filter wrench or the removing tool that fits on the bottom of the filter and attaches to your socket wrench. I also get a 1-gallon milk jug cut off the top 1/3 while leaving the handle on and set it down in the bilge - so I can dump the used oil filter into the jug, since there is not a lot of elbow room to get it out with out spilling. It is also a good idea to get some adsorbent rags to place below the filter and on the carpet next to the engine so you don't spill and oil.
You will want to change the transmission oil at least once a year - check your owners manual for reccomendations. In order to change it you will need a pump of some kind either manual or electric.
I down loaded the Indmar engine manual from thier web site - and it is a good reference to have.
