I can tell you about power boat maintenance. I had one for 7 years. first day back, wont start, no power,work on battery, connections in starter circuit, clean carbs, check topoff oil, clean plugs, tighten belts, replace fuel filters, now it starts. topoff heat exchangers, check impellers, now we can go boating.

boat works great for a couple of days, then park it and come back in a couple of weeks,wont start, repeat.

Wait I forgot; pump water condesate from bottom of fuel tank, dump bad fuel, refill tanks, add 1 gal stabil, (work overtime for a few weeks to pay for gas), come back to boat, repeat above.
