Engine Flushing

I would be grateful if anyone has advice on engine flushing. I intend to place my new boat on a summer mooring (drying) between April and October and am uncertain about the intervals needed between flushing the engine. The engine is an optimax 90. I don't currently have a trailer and the boatyard would probably charge 30 to lift her and put her back flushing after every trip is a nightmare scenario.
This is my first thread since signing up on the forum and my first real question, which goes to show the wealth of info available (so thanks to all those who contribute.
As a complete novice, I would appreciate some guidance.

I'm also looking to do a PB II course asap, can anyone recommend anyone on the Island <200.
