Default Oil Change problems ?

I tried to change my engine oil today, using one of those 'hand pumps', which connects over the dip-stick hole. I started pumping, and got about 3 qts out before it just stopped. I tried to pump more, but just heard sucking sound and air pumping.

Pump is brand new, engine is a MerCruiser 4.3L, year 2000.
FYI, the boat is level to the ground on trailer. and so is engine.
Thoughts on how to get the rest of oil out ?

On a same note, I was going to change the oil filter at the same time.
The marina gave me a standard QuickSilver filter (Q03) spin-on type for my engine, 'short' type, about 3" in diameter, maybe 2 1/2" high.
When I checked filter mounted on engine block, I found much to my surprise, the filter to be about 2 2/3" wide, by about 4" long, and Wix brand
Does anyone else have this type filter ?

Thanks for you feedback, much appreciated !
