Boating is not an inexpensive hobby and you live in a part of the country where the cost of living is pretty high. Remember, you got some oil and filters with that service and you paid retail. And it was two engines so everything was done twice.

I understand going to the authorized service facility for the first few services just to have an experienced person working on your engines and to make sure the warranty isn't compromised, but you can probably do most of this work yourself if you are "mechanically inclined" and have the time.

You can also shop for better prices on parts and cut your maintenance costs.

Other than paying $900 for 100 hour service on a Volvo gas engine 15 years ago, I have nothing to compare your cost to but I suspect it's about right for what you got and where you live.
