Just wondering how often you folks change subject. Every season, by hours, by inspection, how she's running, etc. Appreciate the input in advance!

Only as needed. In my opinion one of the single biggest wastes of money in boating. Keep them clean and keep an eye on them. That being said it is time to change mine. They are 12 years old.

I don't know about my V'rods, as long as they sound good, I don't worry about it. Just found out that the plugs on my Dodge 2500 Hemi have to be changed every 30k. Not just 8 plugs, but 16! They quoted me $275 when I went in for an oil change. And here I thought they were all going to platinum tipped 100k plugs.

Annually,take one out go somewhere other than a Marine Dealer and buy the plugs find out what the gap is and put them in yourself,it will save you a sheet pot of money and change water seperator filter.
