In the real field, most local fishermen do not replace lubricant regularly according to the assigned instruction to engine maintenance. As an important element in engine, lubricant has a duration time of application. General duration time of marine lubricant is 100 hours of running. The project characterized lubricating synthetic oil for 2-stroke outboard gear. Analysis of the oil has been made to obtain information about the life time and properties of marine lubricant. Two types of fishing boat engines evaluated around Kuala Merlimau and Serkam were engine Yamaha 60 and Suzuki 30. The comparison of viscosity, flash point, wear, water content, acid number, and oxidation of lubricants were observed after and before use. The variables for this project are two types of engines 2 stroke outboard boat and also the time taken to perform maintenance gear lubricants. From analysis, the flash point lubricants significantly changed the temperature of 198 oC of new lubricants turned to 97 oC (Yamaha 60) and 78 oC (Suzuki 30) respectively. From the analysis, the highest results of wear of was found 100% from used Suzuki 30 after 3 months (approximately 600 hours). The water content at the same lubricant Suzuki 30 has the highest number of 410,644 ppm. From the analysis, it is concluded that the maintenance of the gear in the boat engine lubricants should not be more than the use for 3 months or less duration of 600 hours. The study was successfully conducted and has been able to determine the appropriate gear lubricant maintenance and can maintain the function of the gearbox properly.
