Well, think of it this way....

how much is an impeller - nowt really so why not change it anyway ? If anything you'll have peace of mind.

. . . and then before you actually go boating you should drive home and check that you turned the oven off!

Update!!!!

Just change it every year - otherwise the problems it can cause are not funny, as I found to my cost this week.

I also found that the logic of "inspect it and change as necessary" doesn't make sense... no-one in ownership of all their marbles removes the gearbox and strips the pump to then re-assemble it without replacing the impeller.

I'll be doing all my own engine servicing from now on...
