I'm not an oil expert, but the the multiweight oils are going to help you with lubrication at startup. Whether or not you can get away with using straight 40W oil is going to depend on how cold it gets when and where you're operating.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
