Re: Changing Oil - an easier way?
Another point with oil if you are cruising. Stay with a brand that is readily available.
When dropping the filter, to keep oil out of the bilge, just back the filter off enough to be able to turn it by hand. Then wrap a plastic shopping bag ( hole free!) around the filter before pulling it off.
