Sounds like sound advise.  I will probably fill up at the end of the season and top it off with no E gas and Sta Bil.

Our Honda was done after 5 years. I also installed a water pressure guage.

Did you have a couple of hundred hours at the end of 5 years

I boat a lot first season with a wet and cool summer I have 100 hours 

Should I wait one more year 

Cost for dealer to do is 300.00 ?

Here at the lake no one seems to do this till it is truly needed 

Their thought is if it isn't broken dont fix it !

I personally think it's more years than hours. The rubber gets brittle and drys out, yes even in water. I replaced my buddies and it was 7-8 years old I think. The impellers were gone !! I'd go 5 max, and if you have basic mechanical abilities you can do it yourself. Takes roughly an hour or more for beer breaks.
