Question Annual Maintenance List?

Do any of you have an annual maintenance list?

While inspecting the water lines, the technician pointed out that my engine water cooling hoses were starting to crack at the seacock, and it occurred to me that I need to start inspecting all those things and repairing/replacing as needed. So I'm trying to compose an annual maintenance list that is comprehensive from bow to stern, and covers any and all systems.

If you dont have an actual written list, just mention a few things that you can think of. Any help is appreciated!

ETA: I could really use some assistance in gas engine maintenance and their peripherals. 454 EFI's.

I started with the spreadsheet on mvdirona and customized for my systems.

Here's some items for ur list. Certainly not an exhaustive list. Replace Oil filler & oil, replace granny fluid, replace inline fuel filter(s), replace fuel/water separator, check fuel lines, replace raw water impeller & check pump for leaks, check belt tension & wear, check all hoses & hose clamps, check tranny & oil coolers & heat exchanger for leaks, replace engine &/or exchanger zincs, replace spark plugs, check ignition wires, check for fluid leaks (oil, fuel, coolant, water). I'm sure I've missed some things that others will chime in on.

When checking fuel lines don't forget to check the fuel tank vent line and the ventilator fitting for obstructions as well as corrosion at the screen flame arrestor. Mud daubers love those for some reason down here in Florida.

Try breaking your list down to systems as you're more likely to cover everything if you deal with the boat in bite size pieces. As an example:

The propulsion system:
Engine oil
Gear oil
Antifreeze
Fuel filter
Oil filter
Crank case breather filter
Motor mounts
Seacock and strainer
Raw water pump
Fresh water pump
Fuel lift pump
Injector pump
Gear pump
Raw water hoses
Fresh water hoses
Hydraulic hoses (gear)
Heat exchanger & anode
Gear cooler & anode
Engine anodes
Prop shaft anode
Cutlass bearing
Propeller and nuts
Engine wiring
Gear wiring
Engine throttle cable
Gear shift cable
Engine battery and starter
Alternator and wiring
Engine belts
Expansion tank pressure cap
Fresh water overflow tank
Etc.

The idea is to have as complete a list as possible of all the inspection points. Some will require service annually such as gear oil. Some will require service more or less frequently. Many, maybe most, may only require inspection. The idea of the comprehensive list is not just to do annual service, but take the time to inspect each system.
