    Good morning everyone I just picked up my first boat and would like to know from some experienced people on what all needs to be serviced? It is a 1994 glutton ssv 175 elite with a Volvo Penta Motor In it I was told that the outdrive fluid is fairly new and that the oil has just recently been changed what else do I need to do as far as maintenance goes? Thanks

    No doubt the impeller. Check the date on the battery while you’re at it. I’d also check the engine and drive oil. Recently mean lake different things to different people.

    Find a local service shop and have a complete service done and check over
    Then you start fresh knowing what is done

    You now have had the first of the 2 happiest days of owning a Botee
    Welcome aboard

    I would also check the date code on the tires . Single axle I would not risk it if they are over 4 years old . A boat towing service is always a good thing to . Enjoy

    Merc 3.0, 180 cubic inches, 140 hp.
    The old Chevy II motor, started out as a 2.5ish, 1964. Keep oil in it, they will run like a generator. On and on and on...not fast, but on and on and on...

    Water pump impeller is in the out drive. Easy enough to change. You tube videos on how to do it. Do the whole housing first time around.

    Thanks! I watched a few videos and it looked easy enough I will go ahead and order the housing and impeller kit and do it myself and change fluids just to have a clear peace of mind.. I appreciate the responses!!!
