Wayne,you use your boat a lot and should really see what a service center recommends. It is a big investment and should be maintained by a professional. The only service I do is an oil change mid season. Good luck.

Take a look at the owners manual, just finished mine,,,

Water pump
Timing belt (way overdue)
Oil, filter
Lower unit grease
Put old plugs in til next season warmup
Fogging oil engine
Lube steering
OEM fuel filter
10 micron external fuel filter
Power head anodes

Thinking about running something through the cooling system

Plus a freaken leaky tank and spongy deck...

I guess I probably go offshore a little more to think like that. I always try my best to just insure my return. Tog time!

think about the thermostat and popet ( pressure relief)valve while you are servicing the cooling system, they are cheap and can cause you a whole of lot of trouble if they fail...and if you do them regularly ( when you service the water pump) you are assured the bolts will come out when/if you do need to change them..

A good run is better than a bad stand!
