    Default Lower gear lube change out

    Anyone out there ever change their lower gear lube after running their boat all summer and NOT have it milky cause of water seepage? I have been running boats for many years, I am talking 100+ hours at least per summer and have never not had milky lube. What say the rest of you?

    I do mine every fall just in case there was any water in there. I have nver had a problem, but I figure if I don't there will be water in there and crack something

    No milky look in mine. Try a pressure test,use new drain plug gaskets every time,and make sure the plugs stay tite.

    No water in the oil here. Might need new drain plug seals.

    Never milky. I always replace the plug gaskets at the same time.
