Do it once, do it right.

Hello all,
I''m having a "little" problem with with a boatyard here in NE. Been here since last Nov. and had my generator pulled out for it''s 7000H service. Just got it back from the yard and noticed that the oil or filters haven''t been changed.
The yard''s trying to act like it''s quite alright to leave old, used oil in an engine for 10 months without operation.
I''ve heard differently and have an understanding that the used oil can be acidic and somewhat caustic to the engine.
I need one of you to give me the exact science of what''s happening as the oil sits there or at least point me in the direction of a technical website that''ll provide the info.
I appreciate any help offered as this yard is trying to stick it to me at every turn.
Thanks, Oz

Oz, I''m not sure what your question is? What instructions did you give the boatyard? Generally, most boatyards will do what you ask them to and nothing more. Ultimate responsibility for our boat''s maintenance rests with us, the owners. If you requested work on your generator, why would you expect the boatyard to change your engine oil? Unless you told them, how would they know when your engine oil was last changed?
All the best,

Larry

Larry I believe he is talking about the engine on the generator not the boat engine.
