    Newbie here, waiting on a seatrial of a 2004 320 DA with 540 hours. My question is the owner just had an oil change how long would the boat have to run in order to do an oil analysis?

    Ideally you would want 50 hours or so on it.

    yea a "valid" oil analysis would require some run time on the oil. On the other hand you could do it with as little as few hours and if you have any anomolies you can run like the wind!
