Probably would not get the joy you do by pre oiling the engine .
Our Buddy Davis ( I own 1/6th of ) had Deutz in it sold them and replaced with Cats
was amazed at how much we got for the old Deutzs
the rest of the owners could not afford the fuel but I would just take it out at night slow and be on the fishing grounds in the morning the other guys used it as a go fast boat
