When to change fluids
I know all of the recommended service intervals but I'm going back and forth on one thing...

I'm at the amount of hours where I need to change tranny fluid and oil but I'm also about to put the boat away for the next few months (note: I keep it in my garage in San Antonio so I don't fully need for it).

Should I change the fluids before storing it or right away when I get it back out for the spring?

Change them before you store it away.

x2. You don't want all the acids and combustion by-products wrecking havoc with your engine over the winter.

I third this sentiment.

Thanks everybody. Already got the fluids changed and it's packed away in the garage (tears). I had LASIK surgery last week so that ended my ski season at least until 2013.
