Congrats on a nice new machine!

You can absolutely use Mobil 1 5W30, a good choice. I would wait until after the 5 hour break in period. Some people wait for 2 oil changes to ensure that the valves seat properly. Either way you should be good. Don't forget the Marine Sta-Bil or the Star-Tron in your fuel.

All the best.

Yes I run Mobil-1 5W30 in mine. I went the first season with the break-in oil (if it is even that) that came from the factory, then changed it out. I got about 8-10 hours this past season.

Is any version of syn or conventional 5w-30 the recommended viscosity. Not 10-W30?

10W30 is way too thick for winter ops. Any version of 5w30 will work so long as it meets or exceeds the spec called for in the owners manual, if any.

I agree! I suppose 10W30 would work if you had a heated garage but all the manufacturers recommend 5W30 regardless.
