I found a small amount of metal shavings in my lower unit tonight when changing the oil. It wasn't much and were all on the drain plug magnet. Are small amounts ok or is this gonna get ugly one day?

A few small shavings are OK. If you roll them between your thumb and index finger and they feel really rough like they are going to cut you, you should have it should checked out. If the lower unit oil is milky, you may have an issue.

Thats right where you want them to be, on the magnet. Doesn't sound to me that you have anything to worry about

Thanks guys, I've had some stupid little frustrating problems with this boat lately. Hopefully I have them all ironed out so I can enter the fishing for freedom tourney.
