Several threads here on this issue.... also recommending not to use this method... Search in the engine forum for one of the threads. I remember one with a resolution.

This happens from time to time. Need to carefully try to twist the tube. Might need to push it in a little as you work with it. Patience is the key to getting it out.

I was using this method. Then I realized my boat had one of the oil drain hoses installed on the pan drain plug. Don't know how I missed that. I made an adapter with a 3" long piece of hose I had laying around and a brass threaded X barbed 90 degree elbow. Now to change the oil I just unscrew the plug on the drain hose, screw on my adapter, then my oil pump slips onto the adapter. I can suck out all the old oil right from the bottom of the pan, don't have to mess with a dipstick tube, and its done much faster without messing with a drain pan. I'll try and post a pic when I'm in the garage next.
