imho, i'd think cold would work just as good as warm if you are sucking from the dipstick port.

if you can access and drain from the bottom there may be a slight advantage to swapping out hot oil; it may flow a tiny bit better than cold oil.

I've always done it cold, its thin fluid.

Most mechanics / dealers change it cold when doing winterizations. No way to warm it unless you launch the boat. It won't warm when running the boat on a fake-a-lake or perko thingamajig.
