At my age very true , now, in the past I could have thought of a few other things

Change the impeller, thermostat, gear oil, sparks and starter pull cord regularly and this engine will last forever.
This is where a forum like this can be very helpful, people willing to give advice, and with knowledge of different makes/models boats/engines that helps others make an informed decision
