    How much do you charge for your services?

    I thought I was proactive regarding maintenance. Do you change your belts and water pump impellers every year?

      Punch list

      It was 9 degrees here in Virginia this morning. Shoreline water on the river that my dock is on, leading to the Chesapeake Bay, was frozen out about 10'. One inch of snow predicted for tonight.

      I'll plan my list a little closer to spring. All I can think of is staying warm. I'm hoping for a short winter.

        400 hr's/year

        belts and impeller always get changed. coolant gets flushed and thermostat changed every 2 years. Oil every 150 hr's, transmission fluid was every 200 the 1st 2 years though I may go to once/season this year.

        I pay the yard winter fees to do all P.M. as long as I am under warranty. It's expensive but better than having a failure during the short summer up here.
