    When out of the water, what is the best way to know your ski is level before checking the oil level?

    It's the rubber rail/bumber around the perimeter of the ski. I find when out of the water and the ski is cold the oil should be near the bottom bend, assuming the ski is level. When warm, either in the water or on the hose for a few seconds it should be between the bends.
