Trying or have done myself to save money

--- Still to go---
Manifolds and risers elbows --- there about 5-6 years old
Engines impellers --- no clue how old they are
Generator impellers --- no clue
Thermostats --- no clue
Most of the console gauges --- sometime they work mostly not
O and the out drives --- three years since last serviced
Is there something else I need to think about doing, I'm not looking for more stuff to do its already a small fortune 
I'd rather be safe and know when things were done, put on a regular schedule.  
I guess this is the part of buying a used boat

    Your enine impellers are generally an every 3-year replacement item, assuming you don't suck in some sand!

    Generator impeller on the 5e: annual - also note the in an anode in the heat exchanger to be serviced and the is a coupling that connects the water pump to the gen set that should be watched / replaced too ($15).

    The gages are known (especially the tachs) to be not all that good.  Search around on here as several of us have done things to replace them with upgraded gages.

    I own a 2005 320 and in regard to the gauges-I was tired of sending them back to Faria every year and ended up replacing them with Smart Gauges. While I was at it I replaced the radar/gps. I did not want to spend the money but in the long run it was worth not having the aggravation and having gauges that are 100% accurate.

    BD, Heat exchanger? Do I have a heat exchanger with raw water cooled

    RY, Fire boy situation. I'm assuming your talking about the fire suppression system I need to check that out too. You said  Infamous fire boy situation is there something I need to know?

    Serenity, nice gauges

    There is a heat exchanger for the generator. Look in the generator forum for the manuals.

    LD, when you do the generator impeller, check the anode and replace if it's more than 50% gone.
