Grease Points - Evinrude ETEC 60HP

I have a rib that has an Evinrude Etec 60HP engine. It will get a three year service in the winter, but I wanted to give it a bit of a helping hand through this summer with a little bit of tlc. Does anyone know where the grease points are that I should be concerned with? I can't find a reference in my manual.

Thanks

Normally tilt tube and steering tube (axes that the motor tilts on and swivels on to steer.) On my Yam, there's 4 (I think) zerk fittings on the tilt tube, and 1 or 2 on the steering tube.

Probably worth pulling and greasing the prop as well.

As JKY says, + the cowl catches usually have grease nipples fitted on the Etec.
