Can anyone tell me what hubs these are(besides rusty and old). I want to get them cleaned up and make sure everything is good.

Those look like the hubs I have. They are UFP Bearing Buddy Gold. Here is the same manual that came with my boat:
I haven't messed with mine much other than to change the oil.

That's what I needed. Thanks. Are you able to see through your inspection window. I can't see anything. Not sure if its empty or the window is stained.

Not real well. I can if the light hits it just right or you shine a flashlight on them. I did take them off last time I changed the oil and tried to clean them up, but they are almost like a smoked color plastic. It helped for a bit, but turned dark again. I could be wrong, but I don't think they used this design for very long before they switched to the current design.
I typically check for leaks every time we tow and change the oil every couple of summers for peace of mind. I know they are designed to go longer, but it's a pretty simple insurance policy. Takes longer to pull the wheels than change the oil....
