Just found and been looking at that link myself.

Looking at some other links it says avoid using WD40 on electric motors and wiring.

So I still find this an ambiguous subject.

If it were mine with ONLY 10 hours I would fog it, "maybe" change the gear oil (Only because it could have leaked), and put it away. Next year start it up and run it, making adjustments as needed. Spark plugs are good for hundreds of hours.

Actually we boat year around in California so I have never winterized anything for myself Other people seem to think 70 degrees (21c) is too cold to take a boat out in January

If it is running ruff get that sorted, other wise I would change the gear oil as you cant really check it with out changing it!
Check the impeller and spark plugs but no need to change if they are in good order
