Default 10w-30 vs 25w-40

Hi all,

I have a 2011 60hp Four Stroke Mercury outboard. I dug into my owner's manual and I noticed that it recommends 10W-30 for colder climates (40 degrees F or less) or 25-40 for warmer climates. Living in MO, I run the boat in some hot weather in the summer and I have been using 10w-30 Four Stroke Quicksilver this whole time!

A couple questions:

1. For a non-high performance engine such as mine, does it matter if you use 10W-30 vs 25W-40?
2. If it does matter, do you think I could have messed up the engine in the two years that I have ran 10W-30?

I appreciate your thoughts and input.
Whatever you allow is what will continue.
