I don't have personal experience with them, but this is the only way some of the foreign cars can be drained of oil. Many if not all of the Mecerdes are this way.

I use a one of those plastic drain containers that are a molded drain pan and contain the oil once drained. Works slick. They fit under an inboard nice.

Something else for inboards is a hose that connects to the oil pans drain instead of the plug. That stays there and hose lays in the bottom of the hull when not in use. Theres a petcock on the other end you slip through the boats bilge drain. I like that one even better.

The advantage over the dipstick pump is it lets everything drain.

I know some people use them on small 4 strokes. I have seen one used before and worked slick. He liked it.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
