Bern,
Has your buddy called Rik @ Arenson about this issue? Seems Rik would know. 12-15 hours interval seems a bit short, I plan on changing my drive oil every 25 hours right along with the engine oil.
Hope this helps.
Dean

UPDATE !!!
Unfortunately a local repair center has misinformed the boat owner. After multiple conversations with Rik (AWESOME GUY IF YOU'VE NEVER SPOKEN WITH HIM) this is being resolved and it appears that the previous owner "MAY" have changed gear ratios and installed the gear sets incorrectly.
RIK THANK YOU FOR YOUR ASSISTENCE IN RESOLVING THIS MATTER !!
RIK and ARNESON get 2 thumbs up !!
