Maintance Tips on 1989 Tristar

I'm trying to make an annual investment to keep my 1989 Tristar (768 hours) on the water and out of the shop for the summer. I typically put on about 50 hours a summer. In addition, any tips on how often to revisit the items below would be awesome as well.

Maintenance over the last 3 years I owned it:
New plugs and wires (2 years ago)
Changed Transmission fluid (2 years ago)
Rebuilt carburetor, which included a new power valve (3 years ago)
New belts (3 years ago)
New Fuel Filter (last year)
New Impeller (last year)
New solenoid (this year..lost a week to boat not starting...;-( )
Oil change/winterization (annually)

Ideas for next year:
New Gas tank and fuel lines
New carburetor (not sure I want to replace it if it's working fine)

New gas tank? That would NOT be a fun project.
