So I did a bunch of needed maintenance today, as it's a new to me boat.
Plugs
Wires
Cap
Rotor
Oil
Filter
New tranny fluid
Impeller
Thermostat
Still need the water separator for the fuel.
My question is, what about the PCV valve, should I change it? Also appears there is one on both sides.
Any other maintenance items I should cover, anything I should lube?

One side should be the breather and the other is the PCV valve. Never heard of a maintenance schedule with any of my Nautiques, would be curious to hear others' input.

Depending on how you feel the boat was treated, wouldn't hurt to check engine/tranny alignment. Other than that seems pretty solid.

I wouldn't worry about the PCV. If you want to check it remove it and shake it. If it rattles it's OK.

belt in good shape?

Good call on checking the belt.
While I was pulling maintenance on my boat this fall I looked at the belt and it looked good. On a whim I hit the ignition to turn the belt some and sure enough it had a split in it.

Belt looked good and I also have a spare in there.

check for trash around your bilge pump. Have had plastic from ice bags and a piece of carpet render the pump useless. OTT, sounds like you're all good to go!

How's the steering? cable, rudder, etc. Should be very easy to turn the wheel.
