Not really when you consider this only needs to be done every 3 year or 300 hours.

I've just paid 450 for the pair including HPF pro gearbox oil. The plugs weren't changed as they have only done 100 hours & were in perfect nick. As Chris says, the next one is 3 years away.

I use Beeston Marina in Nottingham. Eddie, the mechanic is switched on & knows his stuff. I take the boat to him. I got a discount for having 2 engines done.

Well I know its a bit out of your way but maybe of some use to others, This guy does a full service for less than 200 with plugs, gear oil, filter, and full diagnostic engine history print out, And he's Evinrude approved as "they" can be fussy who service there outboards.
John Griffiths outboards, Pembrokeshire.
07817 598539,
Hope this is of some use to someone, I find he's very good and fare.
