"Is this a DIY list built over experience as you learn your boat?" Yes, definitely.

Couple of points :

It's easy to forget the batteries. You need to check the electrolyte regularly. Depends on use, climate, and charging but once a month wouldn't be a bad start until you get used to the consumption.

(My electrolyte use dropped dramatically when I bought the temperature sensor for the Xantrex charger.)

It's also easy to overlook the zinc in the heat exchanger.

Most of my experience has affected the engine servicing. The Universal service manual is a pretty good starting point, then I adjusted things a bit.
