O ya, the list was oil change, antifreeze through entire system, and a hull inspection. That's it. Thanks for your input guys.
What about removing the battery, servicing the trailer (if it's used frequently), anti-corrosion, fluid/filter change, etc? That's a pretty short list for $850. Does that include getting it ready for Summer when Winter is over? Some dealers include this.

Nope. The only things that are done to it, I have explained. So I confronted the service dept. that I found another company to do it, the exact same thing for half the price. The response was.... OK that's fine. I hope others realize that they are insane with there charge. I would understand if it included more things. It is blatant RIP OFF!!!!!!

I did my own for about $80. It helps you learn your boat, and it's not difficult.

$850 is crazy, mines $180 in the fall and about $150 in the spring for a PS190.

I feel DIY is both less expensive and I know it is done right with quality components.

My efforts cost less than $100, go far beyond what my local overpriced boat shop will do, and I don't have to tow it around.

V-drives are more complicated, yes, but any DD owner should be able to winterize and spring prep.

But this is America, where the average male can't change the oil, sparkplugs, brakes and so on in his own automobile. Which is basic man stuff in my book.

I hear that. My neighbors look at me like I'm a mad scientist or master mechanic when I'm doing basic maintenance on my cars/boats in the drive way. Even had one ask if I was from the south because in his mind only "rednecks" can work on their own gear (I took that as a compliment BTW).

On the flip side it does make you popular with the ladies when you can fix things and their guys can't. As Red Green says "if you can't be hansom, be handy".......
