You will likely get a huge amount of suggestions on how to treat an outboard. I have a 1988 Johnson 88 that is freshwater flushed after every fishing trip and think that is why its needed so little maintenance. Yet, my 3.5 Tohatsu on my dinghy is 3 yrs. old and only gets flushed when I stow it for the winter and its doing fine. It's towed behind our sailboat and out of the water on a dock between trips.
My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.
