Peas, that could be true, but since (a) best practice, and the Operating Manual, say to replace the filter when you replace your oil and (b) most sailboat people don't run their engines for anywhere near the 100hour factory-spec interval between changes, having a bigger filter is a waste of money. IMO.

If you have the bigger filter already, I suggest you change both in the spring - for the correct one this time.
